High Impact Crane Safety: 9801
Many types and sizes of cranes assist us in lifting and moving heavy loads in our workplaces: overhead bridge cranes, mobile gantry cranes,
jib cranes and others. No matter what the size or type, all cranes present potential hazards that must be addressed to prevent serious injuries
or death. Because a crane accident with devastating consequences can occur in a split second, our safe use of cranes is critical to the health
and safety of everyone in the plant.
This dynamic video features 5 re-enactments of accidents involving indoor cranes. These re-enactments illustrate the importance of our
following safe work procedures to protect co-workers and company property when using any type of crane. The program shows when and
how crane inspections and pre-operational checkouts are performed, how to determine the weight of a load and load capacity of a crane and
how to inspect and safely use slings. Other topics include lifting and moving loads safely, use of hand signals when operating cab-controlled
cranes and safe work procedures for crane repair.
PROGRAM OBJECTIVES: After watching the program, the participant will be able to explain the following:
• When and how crane inspections and pre-operational checkouts are performed;
• How to determine the weight of a load and the load capacity of a crane;
• How to inspect and use slings as well as how sling angles add tension to the load;
• How to safely lift and move loads;
• How hand signals are used during operation of cab-controlled cranes;
• Why Lockout/Tagout procedures are important during crane repair.
