Crane & Rigging Meetings and Upcoming Events

Back in March at the HBR Crane and Rigging meeting Matt Gardiner with HAAG Engineering made a presentation on "Wind Effect on Cranes and Loads". The power of the wind is often underestimated when working with cranes. People sometimes forget that there is a significant potential for disasters due to wind loads. Please be careful when wind becomes a factor on the job.

Guy Ramsey with Maximum Capacity Media visited and extended a $100 discount for all HBR members wanting to attend the 2010 Crane and Rigging Conference at the Crown Plaza Houston/Greenspoint on May 26th and 27th here in Houston, Texas. The Crane & Riggin Conference offers "safety personnel, fleet and facility managers, as well as operators an independent forum where crane users and suppliers can debate the real-world dynamics of working with this equipment." BLP is an Event Partner of the CRC. We hope to see you there. 

Our guest for April's meeting was Richard Corbello with Columbus-McKinnon. He gave a presentation on "Chain Hoists and Come-A-Longs". This topic will be available soon for download on the HBR site. 

The May meeting for HBR will be a Breakfast Meeting held at Brady's Landing and will feature a few booths from some of our members. There will be two special topics discussed. One will be a discussion on 3rd Party Inspections and will have panel members form CICB, NACB and Bishop Lifting Products, Inc. for discussion. We look forward to conversing on the importance of lifting material inspections. The second topic will be Load Calculations-Part II, by Carol Crane and Rigging.

There are many events and conferences coming up in May for the Lifting and Rigging Industry. The 2010 Offshore Technology Conference takes place May 3rd - 6th at the Reliant Center. OTC is "the world's foremost event for development of offshore resources in the fields of drilling, exploration, production, and environmental protection." Bishop Lifting Products, Inc. will be in booth 1009. Come and see what we have rigged up for 2010.

The Association of Crane & Rigging Professionls General Assembly Meeting will take place in Shreveport, Louisiana on May 11th thru 13th. ACRP is "dedicated to improving crane operations and rigging activities in all industries." They provide educational materials and opportunities to it's members and also to the public so we can all stay informed on crane and rigging operations in our industry.

As always, "Safety is Number One" and we hope to see you at one or all of these events.
