Moving large, heavy loads is critical to the manufacturing and construction industries, but unfortunately, cranes, derricks, hoists, and other lifting devices pose significant safety issues for both their operators and for workers in proximity to them. The rules are complex and often out of date; here, we give OSHA-Subpart N-recommended, ANSI-based tips for safe usage and cover cranes, derricks, hoists, elevators and conveyors.

OSHA recommends Outreach Training Program courses as an orientation to occupational safety and health for workers.  Workers must receive additional training, when required by OSHA standards, on the specific hazards of their job.

Course Objectives

Upon completion of the lesson, participants will be able to: 

  • List the four major causes of crane accidents
  • Describe the preplanning that is required before putting a crane into use
  • State the two main precautions that apply to working with cranes near power lines
