About this Course:
The staggering number of fatalities associated with the use of cranes and derricks in construction led OSHA to release an historic standard in 2010. The standard comprehensively addresses key hazards related to cranes and derricks on construction work sites, including the four main causes of worker death and injury: electrocution, crushed by parts of the equipment, struck-by the equipment/load, and falls.
In many cases, the construction standards have application in a general industry setting and can also present challenges for multi-employer worksites. This course covers the best practices in crane and derrick operation using the OSHA Cranes and Derricks in Construction Rule as a guide. Information presented will help participants understand criteria specified in CFR 29 1926 Subpart CC designed to keep crane operators safe as well as other workers and visitors to the site.
This course is designed to benefit employers, general contractors, subcontractors, property owners, project managers, site superintendents, consultants, temporary workers and other personnel who need to understand OSHA’s Rule on Cranes and Derricks in Construction, CFR 29 1926 Subpart CC and how to work safely around cranes.
