Pedestal Mounted Crane – Operator Safety (CAN)

This online Pedestal Mounted Cranes course covers important aspects of pedestal mounted cranes, including their components, hazards, rigging, operations, and inspections.

Course Overview

Cranes are the workhorses that have increased economic growth and productivity in construction, mining, logging, maritime, production, and service facilities. It is not uncommon while driving in urban areas to see mobile cranes, tower cranes, and maritime cranes all in a short period of time, performing a wide variety of jobs.

When it comes to manufacturing and repairing ships and boats or to loading and unloading products and machinery, maritime cranes are essential.

From large gantry cranes used to lift containers on and off ships to small swinging jibs used for lifting much smaller loads, training is needed to ensure safe operation and productivity.

This online course covers the anatomy of these cranes and stresses the importance of inspecting them each day before they are put into service.
