When you pass a construction job site, what do you invariably see?  Crane booms. When someone wants to illustrate "construction", what type of pictures do they reach for?  Cranes.  Cranes are the visible indicator of lifting activities. Lifting is everywhere in construction, everything you remove or add has to be handled, sometimes multiple times.  Then there is lifting in general industry, in steel works, in fabrication, in routine handling at docks and so on.  As well as being universal, lifting is also one of the most hazardous activities routinely encountered on a construction job.
