    Lifting Equipment & Lifting Accessories

    COURSE OBJECTIVE:

    This course is intended for construction engineers, supervisors, and owners, who want to learn more about LELA on construction sites, and how to develop comprehensive crane safety plans that are both safety-program-compliant and project-specific. The goal of this training is to raise awareness of engineers’ and management’s roles, responsibilities, and influence with regard to safety on the construction worksite – including crane safety.

    The program will also provide high-level technical background, legal and regulatory explanations; and expert guidance to deal effectively with all players on the project – owner to subcontractor – relative to crane operations.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

    • Identify the elements of a site specific lifting safety plan
    • Recommend best practices regarding management roles and responsibilities for crane safety on construction sites – from owner to subcontractor
    • Become familiar with the different types of mobile cranes
    • Cover hazards associated with crane operation and explain how the crane safety plan will minimize the risk of crane accidents
    • Explore current regulations, standards and certification programs

    TOPICS COVERED:

    • Establishing a Crane Safety and Lifting Program
    • Mobile Cranes and Alternate Lifting Methods,/li>
    • Rigging Awareness
    • Site Preparation
    • Preventing Crane and Lifting Accidents
    • Regulations and Legal Aspects
