Crane & Rigging Meeting - Houston Business Roundtable

At the Houston Business Roundtable meeting on January 12th, we were excited to see all the new attendees... We had record attendance for January with around 43 people. 


Topics discussed included: Lifting Lugs, OSHA update on C-DAT proposal, and an ASME B30 Committee chair person roster was passed out.  Charlie Emmitte, of Valero Refining, brought up a good discussion on wind considerations and LSI wind monitoring equipment.  Wayne Oswald showed a “Powerful” power point presentation on texting while driving.  I presented a framed photo to Kerry Hulse of Deep South Crane and Rigging as a token of his traveling preparation reputation.


Walter Brumley called for topics and speakers for upcoming meetings and breakfast forums.  HBR is planning an April breakfast forum with a likely panel discussion format.  Likely topics will be 3rd party inspection practices.


At the end of the meeting we had a surprise bachelor’s party for Walter Brumley who’s getting married on Saturday...  Congratulations Walter!
