Safer crane lifting projects: HookCam

A new camera system will enhance the safety of crane lifting projects, says its maker HookCam Europe.

Described by the company as a wireless camera system that attaches directly to the hook block of a crane, they add that the HookCam system delivers a live video stream to the operator in the cabin. This eliminates communication issues faced when operating in the blind and gives the operator another set of eyes, with an aerial view from the hook’s perspective, they say.

According to HookCam Europe, the operator has more control of risks on the job site and can work more safely, efficiently and productively with the HookCam. System features described by the firm include its adaptable mounting system, its hands-free operation, and the weatherproof casing.

Some of the safety features of the HookCam camera system include giving the operator the ability to confirm the balance and load security, and an increased site awareness, say HookCam Europe. They also add enhanced productivity is another benefit.
