Mobile Crane Safety in the Propane Industry Program Downloadable Items

This program meets the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's general industry requirements for training a qualified crane operator, and provides the means to teach operators how to use cranes safely and effectively. It provides basic information on the safe operation of articulating and telescopic cranes, the two most common types of cranes used in the propane industry.

The program includes files for a training manual, a quiz, an instructor guide, a series of Crane Safety Talk handouts, and a PowerPoint presentation of the program for classroom instruction. The one-page handouts can be used for safety meetings and training sessions.

The topics covered are:

  • Introduction to Crane Equipment

  • Inspection and Maintenance

  • Crane Capacity and Load Charts

  • Rigging and Hand Signals

  • Overhead Power Line Safety

  • Crane Transport

  • Site Assessment

  • Wind, Weather, and Adverse Operating Conditions

  • Crane Set-Up

  • Operating a Telescopic Crane

  • Operating an Articulating Crane

  • Crane Shut-Down and Stowage

  • Lifting and Transporting Tanks with More than 5% Product

Please note that this program may not include all the information needed to pass the written test part of the third party certification provision of OSHA’s new crane operator rule which is under its construction standard. And, while OSHA has extended the deadline for third party certification from 2014 to 2017, it is still important for crane operators to be trained on how to perform their job safely. We are still waiting for clarification from OSHA on how that rule impacts crane operators in the propane industry.

This program is also available in a two disk presentation, with the training video in DVD and all the training documents in a CD that can be ordered by adding item PRC-009410 to your cart.
