About this product

Available to purchase as a whole or as individual items.This program meets the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's general industry requirements for training a qualified crane operator, and provides the means to teach operators how to use cranes safely and effectively. It provides basic information on the safe operation of articulating and telescopic cranes, the two most common types of cranes used in the propane industry. The program includes a video on DVD that highlights best practices and is organized into modules that allow to view the entire program or individual sections based on job responsibilities and training requirements, and a CD containing a training manual, a quiz, an instructor guide, a series of Crane Safety Talk handouts, and a PowerPoint presentation of the program for classroom instruction. The one-page handouts can be used for safety meetings and training sessions.


The topics covered are:


• Introduction to Crane Equipment

• Inspection and Maintenance

• Crane Capacity and Load Charts

• Rigging and Hand Signals

• Overhead Power Line Safety

• Crane Transport

• Site Assessment

• Wind, Weather, and Adverse Operating Conditions

• Crane Set-Up

• Operating a Telescopic Crane

• Operating an Articulating Crane

• Crane Shut-Down and Stowage

• Lifting and Transporting Tanks with More than 5% Product


Please note that this program may not include all the information needed to pass the written test part of the third party certification provision of OSHA’s new crane operator rule which is under its construction standard. And, while OSHA has extended the deadline for third party certification from 2014 to 2017, it is still important for crane operators to be trained on how to perform their job safely. We are still waiting for clarification from OSHA on how that rule impacts crane operators in the propane industry.
