A Simple chart to keep your jobsite safe

Keeping your crew safe is the most important task to complete on any jobsite. Making sure everyone is able to go home after a long day of hard work means much more than any output goal or project benchmark. 

With that in mind, efficiency becomes paramount to ensure that your jobsite can be successful. This requires working with a sense of urgency while working to set up your rigging equipment. You need to make sure that you are setting everything up correctly since backtracking to redo work will cost you precious time. 

Few things are more frustrating than setting up your wire rope only to find it is not rated for the lift you are about to attempt. Such a simple thing can bring your jobsite to a screeching halt. Luckily, there is a simple solution that can help you avoid this headache altogether.

Wire rope strength charts help you easily match the wire rope you need for your lift. They are so handy that you can easily either keep a printed copy or an image on your phone, allowing you to reference it at a moment’s notice. 

This simple reference tool will save you time as you prepare for your project as it will help you quickly source the wire rope you need as well as its ability to help you double check your rig as you set up. 

At Southwest Wire Rope, we have helped worksites operate productively and safely since 1966. We offer a full catalog of wire rope, chains and rigging hardware to keep your jobsite working safely.
