Tool and Equipment Tracking - Crane Rigging

Tool and Equipment Tracking - Crane Rigging NYC

Crane rigging requires a lot of tools and equipment. Visitors to a large R. Baker & Son rigging operation might see forklifts, cranes, excavators, generators, articulating booms, front loaders, lulls, chain hoists, pneumatic hammers, pry bars, backhoes, wrenches, slings, shackles, and spreader bars, just to name a few. What they won’t see is all of the planning, organization, maintenance, and inventory control that goes on behind the scenes to ensure that all of these rigging tools and equipment are in tip-top shape and can be readily located across all R. Baker job sites at any given moment. This also extends to equipment that’s in for service or scheduled maintenance. 

With hundreds of pieces of equipment and a dozen or more ongoing projects on various schedules, tool and equipment tracking is of supreme importance at R. Baker & Son. We use robust tool management software customized to our operation to ensure that our crews are always equipped with what they need and that our clients are provided with exemplary service. 

Getting replacement parts for tools and equipment has been a challenge due to the current supply chain problems, so R. Baker & Son invested more heavily in critical spare parts than usual to ensure that we have what we need, especially on long-lead parts. 

Our site crews thoroughly inspect all tools and equipment when received and send back any that are damaged or otherwise unfit for use. These items are “flagged and tagged” for assessment by our maintenance department to determine whether they are to be repaired, replaced, or discarded. R. Baker & Son mechanics, welders, and electricians help keep many of our repairs in-house and under our strict control, which is an advantage that allows freedom from depending on others to meet deadlines. All rigging equipment – slings, harnesses, shackles, cables, straps, hooks, pins, etc. – found to be worn, frayed, kinked, corroded, or otherwise damaged are permanently removed from service. We are always actively purchasing new equipment and tools to replenish retired inventory.
