Our goal is to do every lift without injury or damage. We take every precaution to ensure your job is completed safely and smoothly.
To make lifting projects go as smoothly as possible, communication is the key. All of our cranes have radios or headsets so communication can be clear and precise with their coworkers. Our engineer operators know the correct crane signals, making jobs go so much smoother. Please ask the operator if you have any questions on crane signals so there are no communications or mix-ups.

All our operators at Ivan’s Crane go through the NCCCO Crane Certification course and carry CCO Certification.
Set-up for Success
One of the biggest contributors to a successful lift is the initial crane setup. There are three main conditions we look at before we set up a crane.
#1 Level Ground
The more level the ground the lower the crane sits on its outriggers, making the crane more stable. We ask contractors to level the ground as much as possible before we arrive. This dramatically decreases set up time and improves the speed and safety of our crane service.
There are instances where we won’t be able to set up to do the job at all without this precaution.
The next safety variable is space. We need vehicles and materials moved out of the way of the set-up pad. Each one of our cranes has a different outrigger footprint; We can run our outriggers to 50% span, but it decreases the cranes capacity and the overall stability of the crane. We use full outriggers as much as possible, so keep that in mind when preparing your site for the crane.
#3 Ground Compaction
Unstable ground is one of the main reasons cranes can tip over causing danger. This can include:
- Non-compact/loose soil
- Unknown voids/cavities under the surface
- Hillsides/unlevel ground
The flatter the ground and the more space we have for setting up the crane, the safer the operation will be.
If you have questions about crane safety on your Arizona or Utah construction project, reach out to an engineering expert today. We’ll be happy to assist in creating a secure job site.
