MARCOM’s interactive course on Crane Safety in Industrial and Construction Environments reviews the hazards associated with working with cranes, discusses the federal regulations that address these hazards and the policies and procedures that employees should follow to work safely with these machines. Cranes provide lifting power that can be indispensable for industrial and construction operations. But they can also create serious hazards for the people who work with and around them. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, crane accidents lead to thousands of accidents, injuries and more than 70 fatalities each year… but they don’t have to happen.
Areas covered in the course include different types of cranes, crane hazards and safety standards, making a crane safety inspection, preparing a boom crane for a lift, lifting, moving and landing a load and more. Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today.
The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood… and retained.
