Crane Operators rely on Crane Signalers to ensure loads are safely moved throughout your worksite and to ensure the safety of all workers. In order to signal a crane, you must receive Crane Signal Person Safety Training. This course provides a detailed discussion of the four types of signals used, and provides participants with the essential information to comply with the OSHA Signal Person Qualification requirements described within 1926.1428 . It includes an overview of equipment operation and limitations, including how particular cranes swing, raise and lower loads, how they stop loads, and boom deflection from hoisting loads.
By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Name four types of signals
- List equipment limitations
