Safe Handling: Pipelayers, Sidebooms and Lifting Equipment

Cross-country pipelines deal in large diameter pipe. With miles-long spreads, pipelayers, sidebooms, vacuum lifters and other equipment help contractors lay in the pipe that connects supply to market. With concerns related to pipeline integrity, these machines must be able to handle the pipe without damaging coatings or the structure of the pipe itself.
