This task force was created to further advance awareness of regulations and standards surrounding outrigger pads and crane mats, as well as address the importance of these tools: the supporting surface of every lift.

Jeff and his nephew, Eric Steiner, are also members of the P30 Standards Outrigger Pad Subcommittee, held by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. The Subcommittee has discussed a range of topics surrounding outrigger pads and is working to develop standards surrounding their usage regarding material, set-up procedures, and vocabulary to make the jobsite a stronger, more stable, and all-around safer environment.

Bigfoot Construction Equipment is an American-Family manufacturer and the only maker of both premium wood and custom composite outrigger pads, the company said. In addition, Bigfoot is now proudly providing American Steel crane mats, known as American Armor, made to support cranes ranging from 200T-400T.
