Overhead Crane Operator Safety Training
Our Overhead Crane Operator Safety Training program provides both theoretical and practical training. It includes classroom instruction (theory) followed by a hands-on Competency Evaluation to reinforce the theory and specific skills required to safely and efficiently operate the equipment. After completing this program, you will be competent and feel comfortable with operating your workplace’s Overhead Crane. Three (3) years from the date of taking this Overhead Crane Operator Safety Training, you are required to re-take this program to maintain your certification.
The first part of this program consists of an in-class training program. This part of the program covers:
- Common causes of Overhead Crane Accidents
- Legal requirements under the OHSA and Regulations
- CSA Standards regarding the safe operation of various industrial crane types, including: bridge cranes, jib cranes, gantry cranes, monorails, top running and under slung cranes, and below-the-hook lifting devices
- The Responsibilities of Employers, Supervisors, and Workers
- The Rights of Workers
- Determining Load Weight
- Safe use of Slings
The second part of the program consists of our Trainer going to your worksite and evaluating your competency level while operating the Overhead Crane required for your job. This is the practical portion of the program.
Please note: We do NOT have powered equipment (an Overhead Crane) at our location.
