One of the most common complaints from workers on project sites, regarding hoisting operations, is they can’t hear the signal person’s whistle.
The Rig Ring, by RK Solutions, is an electronic 120DB whistle and blinking light that combines handheld functionality with remote control capability. The Rig Ring is intended to be fixed to an overhead load by the certified rigger or signal person, while the signal person is communicating with the crane operator via radio, the rigger can activate the Rig Ring whistle remotely. This really allows the signal person to be able to concentrate on communication during the lift.
To see the device in action, watch the video below.
