Recognition of MAA Safety Innovation – Rigging – Safety Hooks

Carl Beaubien from Great Lakes Aggregates company received special recognition of doughnuts and coffee from the Michigan Aggregates Association for his role in developing and implementing a valuable safety innovation. 
This innovation recommends using safety hooks that allows for the employee to safely rig and lift various equipment without damaging the integrity of the latching mechanism. If the recessed trigger is not closed upon rigging, the latch will automatically close when there is the slightest amount of tension.
