STConnect Feb (Improving Crane Safety)

Improving crane safety is our concern at Salestrade and we have been doing it for 25 years.  This year on our 25th anniversary, we are happy to be invited to showcase HBC wireless remote controls and other products at WSH symposium on Cranes 2019.  Minister of State for Manpower and National Development Zaqy Mohamad graced the event and shared that the number of such dangerous occurrences has fallen from 22 in 2015 to 12 last year. However, he added that “We should not be complacent, but be further motivated to make crane operations even safer for our workers. One way we can do so is through technology”.

It has been an honour to share more on how our remote controls and anti-collision systems can help tremendously in improving crane operations, specifically Tower Cranes for this symposium. We are also humbled that Minister of State for Manpower and National Development Zaqy Mohamad gave a go at our wireless remote control, and experience how we can control the tower crane without being in the cabin. 

There are multiple ways HBC remote control can add value for your facility and projects. Such as operating cranes with new freedom, operators are no longer tethered to the cranes/machines and can position themselves in the safest location to monitor the entire operation. They can also easily combine multiple duties, maximising the capabilities of your manpower. Check out our feature on The Straits Times below or through this link.

Singapore Cranes Association manager Alson Ang said that “It is about convincing companies to take it on. The challenge is the cost, lack of knowledge of how to use the technology on the ground and the many choices that are available.” That is why we are now offering a free trial of HBC wireless remote control on your tower crane.
