Crane Safety

Cranes pose significant safety issues, both for the operators and workers in proximity to them. Moving large, heavy loads is crucial to today’s manufacturing and construction industries, and several technologies have been developed for these operations. The American National Standards Institute, or ANSI, and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, or ASME, continually update standards for crane manufacturing, operational procedures, inspection requirements, and operator qualifications. In addition, the Specialized Carriers and Riggers Association, or SC&RA, which represents most of the crane owners and users, has developed a set of requirements for crane operator qualifications and certification.
