About Andina

Andina Consulting & Lifting Solutions (ACLS) provides expert lifting and rigging consulting services and training to the oil & gas, pipeline, renewable energy, and mining sectors globally.

Lifting operations are widely regarded as one of the highest risk activities undertaken in the construction industry. It is a critical and unavoidable task whenever construction, operation, and maintenance activities are undertaken.

Ron believes that all the lifting and rigging incidents that have occurred over the years were preventable, saying “Having worked on major projects across the industry and around the world over the last decade, I have seen first-hand the importance of due diligence and of being able to demonstrate that everything reasonably practicable was done to prevent an injury or incident.  Since the introduction of Section 217.1 of the Criminal Code, due diligence has become the cornerstone of any safe lifting program.”
