Crane Signalperson Basic Training

Cranes are integral to the construction process, as they are vital to safely moving large and heavy material in a complex construction environment. However, dangers may also rise due to their massive size. There are important crane safety measures to ensure safe operation of a crane; this video will help you learn and understand the proper ways of communication between the crane signalperson and the load operator.

Every crane has a load limit, as well as a number of factors that can affect that load limit. This crane signalperson safety lesson instructs the viewer on which factors affect a crane's load limit, as well as how to properly address those factors. The human element in this equation is knowing the fact that a crane functions only as well as the load operator and signalperson. Because of the constant noise at a construction site, a crane load operator may have his or her ability to hear and see seriously compromised. The ways to overcome these visual and auditory limitations come through a series of standard and non-standard hand signals given to the operator by the signal person. This online video training informs the learner of these signals, as well as how to properly use them on the job.

A crane signalperson's communication is critical to the safe operation of a crane and is vital to the completion of the construction project. With this crane signalperson training video, the viewer will learn the various crane signals, including standard, non-standard, and voice commands a signalperson has at his or her disposal. The viewer of this crane safety training course will also learn the basic safety protocol when around a crane, to complete the construction job safely and effectively.
