Crane Safety Training Grande Prairie - Businesses and crane operators must be aware of the problems connected to crane safety. Legislation provides rules for the safe inspection, maintenance and operation of lifting machines across North America. Crane Safety courses truly help crane owners and managers accredit their drivers in accordance with provincial legislation.
We have designed numerous training courses to equip operators with all the knowledge and skills needed to make crane lifting easier and safer. Training the operator actually helps to extend the crane's life span by ensuring high performance and safe operation of the crane.
Operators who are accredited are required to run and operate articulated cranes under 16,000 lbs. capacity. The articulated crane driver needs to know regarding the various operational features and characteristics of the machinery. Before use, a pre-operational equipment check has to be performed. There is a legal prerequisite to do a pre-operational check as well as an inspection of the work-site ground and overhead conditions.
The manufacturer's instructions provide information regarding maintenance and inspection, unloading and loading of the crane. The law requires annual and daily inspections. Drivers must maintain an up-to-date logbook in nearly all places. They might be needed to certify equipment warranties.
Adding remote control devices to the cranes is often suggested. Remote control improves safety by enabling the driver an easier option for handling the crane.
Placing a high priority on crane safety helps a company's bottom line. Businesses that follow safe equipment practices generally enjoy greater cost savings compared to those that don't. The risk of personal injury and machine damage is very much lessened when a well trained operator is handling the crane. Safety conscious operators are much more productive leading to less times needed for loading and unloading.
