While there are many different types of cranes, they all can make many jobs much
easier by lifting enormous weight. But they also share the potential for disaster when
they are not operated safely. Crane-related accidents can often be deadly, due to the
heavy loads that are lifted. Once a load or a crane itself falls, not much can be done to
stop it, and there is little time for people to move safely out of the way.
REALTIME-SAFETY’s training products on “Crane Safety” point out to employees that
over 90% of crane-related accidents are caused by human error… and that they are
the key to preventing these incidents.
Topics covered in these products include:
Recent changes in the OSHA crane regulations.
Equipment inspection and hazard assessment.
Boom, jib and overhead cranes.
General and operational safety devices.
Crane operations and hand signals.
