This presentation will go through the critical steps in planning a material handling task whether it be a simple job involving mechanical material handling equipment, a job involving a powered industrial truck, a jack and roll type job or a job requiring an overhead or mobile crane. A successful project requires detailed planning starting as soon as the need for material handling is identified and we will go through that process from start to finish as we do at a Department of Energy Laboratory. We have found that in the majority of the material handling events we have had at DOE Labs, there were almost always issues with the planning that could have prevented the event.

This presentation will teach the participant to how to identify each sling’s share of load activity. Being able to visually identify sling loading activity opens several new doors on how to resolve sling loading issues and an understanding to load movement as it relates to the load’s center of gravity.
