OVERHEAD CRANE SAFETY (E-LEARNING)

Description

Overhead traveling cranes and cranes are devices used to lift and move heavy loads. Due to their high power, lifting devices can be the most dangerous equipment on a job site.

Every year in Canada, hoisting accidents result in hundreds of injuries, dozens of deaths and millions of dollars in property damage.

Target Audience

All workers who operate cranes.

Objectives

  • Identify and describe the three main types of industrial cranes
  • Identify two types of controllers
  • List the three things that must be verified before a lift
  • Define and describe rigging and slings
  • Describe basic safety inspections for overhead industrial cranes, their components, and rigging
  • Describe guidelines for personal protective equipment when working around cranes
  • List the three things that factor into load capacity
  • Describe how the sling angle can affect rigging
  • Describe safe procedures for lifting, moving, and setting down a load
  • Describe guidelines for operating a crane near people
