Safety in the Hands of the Signaller

Disclaimer

Imagine yourself on a normal day at work. As a crane operator, it is typical that you would maneuver around noise-hazardous zones in which digging, drilling, or piling are conducted. It is also usual to have obstructed field of view which might be due to the large equipment that blocks your vision. When these challenges are not properly handled, it may increase your chances of getting into crane-related accidents. Noise can interfere with communication necessary for working safely, such as instructions or warning signs. Attempting to conduct a lift with restricted visibility will put everyone in danger of collision. How can we avoid these circumstances?

What are some standard hand signals used during crane operations?

SPECIAL SIGNALS Working with Boom Cranes There are two special signals that are used in conjunction with boom cranes, for when the boom will be raised or lowered.

Safety in the Hands of the Signaller

Boom Down When the boom needs to be lowered, the signal person should extend their arm, close their fist and point their thumb down.

Preventive Crane Maintenance and Inspection

Disclaimer

CRANE AND HOIST INSPECTIONS Cranes and hoists, like other heavy equipment, need to be inspected and maintained on a regular basis to ensure that they are safe to operate. Along with the maintenance instructions provided by the manufacturers, the OSHA standards must also be followed. As a team, we are responsible for each other's safety. Through preventive maintenance and inspection of equipment, we can confidently work in a safe environment. On the next slide, we'll talk about how often should inspections be conducted.

KNOWLEDGE CHECK Which of the following inspection procedure is true? Select 2 correct statements

Which of the following areas should an “out of order” sign be placed when a crane is defective? Select all that apply
