Overview

Cranes allow for the efficient movement of heavy loads over distances, but improper crane operation can be deadly. Contact with energized power lines account for 45 percent of crane accidents. This training video addresses hazard identification, avoidance and control, as well as Occupational Health and Safety Administration standards that apply to crane operation. It discusses the major contributors to crane accidents, the basic parts of a crane and how cranes operate, and ways to avoid injury to crane operators and others in the work area. The role of the OSHA-required competent person in ensuring cranes are properly inspected and maintained is discussed. The video training emphasizes the importance of knowing the crane’s load capacity, safe operating speeds, special hazard warnings, and conducting safety inspections and regular maintenance of cranes.

Mobile, hydraulic, overhead, gantry and tower types of cranes play a crucial role in industry and commerce. Operators must keep safety top-of-mind, obtain the required training and heed OSHA standards in order to protect themselves, their co-workers, the heavy equipment, and the loads cranes move. This video training provides a quality overview of safe crane operation and emphasizes the operator’s responsibilities. It concludes with a learning assessment to be sure the main points of the video are understood. It also has downloadable documents for the viewer to read to deepen their understanding of the training topics.
