Crane Safety Workshop Teaches Management, Rigging

Crane safety has become a hot topic due to the recent spate of crane fatalities. Most glaring were the tower crane collapses in New York City and Miami that killed 10 workers and one bystander this spring.

Cranes are valuable construction assets that are necessary to achieve timely, profitable success. A two day course, titled "Crane Safety Management And Rigging," Thursday- Friday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Room 207B, is intended for safety practitioners, managers, supervisors, operators, riggers, and any personnel who need to understand crane operations. Whether they lease or own their crane assets, attendees will acquire the general knowledge and guidelines to help them manage your project operations.

Topics to be covered include responsibilities of the operator, owner, and user; lift considerations and set-up; crane configurations; operational aids; unsafe conditions; laws and recordkeeping; and stability.

The first day will focus on construction crawler, gantry, and tower, as well as some coverage of general industrial cranes. The second day will concentrate on rigging, a valuable asset necessary to achieve timely, profitable success.

Under ASME B30.9, anyone who will rig must be trained. Topics covered on this second day will also include rigging applications; load control; center of gravity; D/d ratios; sling types (wire rope, synthetic web, synthetic round, high-performance fiber slings); wear protection; cut protection; and inspection criteria for all types of rigging or slings.

Presenters for the event are Thomas De Soo, director of sales, Mid-Atlantic Trainer, and Jeffrey Hammons Sr., vice president of risk management, AmQuip.
