ESTA is determined to give new impetus to expanding its Crane Capacity Index project in 2020. Despite the doubts and resistance from some manufacturers, ESTA is convinced that this is an important issue and will support our safety agenda by increasing industry transparency.
Some manufacturers have argued that the index is too simplistic. However, ESTA believes it provides an important baseline to help purchasers and users understand exactly what type of crane they are dealing with.
The latest version of the crane capacity index is available from the Downloads section of the ESTA website and there will be more on this subject soon.
