Crane and rigging systems can help workers quickly and efficiently move and transport high volumes of goods. However, if they are not manipulated correctly, these vehicles can lead to devastating injuries and even death. Cranes are not only dangerous for operators, but can become a hazard for employees who work around them as well.

It is therefore necessary that both operators and non-operators receive rigorous training before they work with or around cranes. This program in Crane Safety teaches students how to identify different types of cranes, as well as evaluate potential dangers and take safety precautions to minimize the risks.

All employees who are tasked to operate cranes or must work around these vehicles are required to undergo crane safety training. The course is designed for both existing employees and potential job candidates looking to complete their CVs prior to an interview.

Businesses in some industries are more likely to require crane safety training than others. These include:

  • Energy & Electricity,
  • Oil & Gas,
  • Logging & Forestry,
  • Construction,
  • Automotive & Manufacturing,
  • Logistics (Transportation & Warehousing),
  • Agriculture & Food.

Employers whose businesses frequently employ crane and rigging systems to move and transport goods are required by law to provide access to crane safety courses for all workers. As such, it is the employer’s responsibility to acquire and implement the necessary training program.

However, some job candidates choose to independently complete this safety course to improve their CVs prior to being hired. Ultimately, it is the worker’s responsibility to undergo the training program and to apply the techniques he or she learns at work.

To complete this course in crane safety, you must be able to recognize the components of a crane/rigging system, as well as the different types of cranes that are in use today. In addition, you will be asked to describe the potential hazards associated with cranes and to set out a series of preventative measures that can help minimize risks for (non-)operators.

It is recommended that employees who operate cranes or work around these vehicles on a daily basis should re-take this course every year. New vehicles, technologies, and protocols enter quotidian use on a yearly basis, so it’s important to remain up to date with the latest changes both for your safety and that of your colleagues.

Workers or businesses who purchase Crane Safety often pair this course with Fall Arrest, Personal Protective Equipment, and Lockout/Tagout.
