Crane and Construction Training CD's

Crane and Construction Training CD's

Welcome the Hard Hat Training Series. These CD's and all of its materials have been developed and used by our professional trainers out in the field. They are now available to be used and adapted to your companies needs. They can be used as is, or you may customize them to fit your company, worksite and equipment. Slides can be added or deleted, pictures and content may be changed. We encourage this specialization, but you need to be careful not to leave out required training content. Also, if a change is made to the presentation, you may need to make a corresponding change to the student manual. Take time before giving a class to familiarize yourself with all of the materials and decide in advance which changes you may like to make. We provide safety training for the following equipment: Sit Down Forklift | Stand Up Forklift | Telescopic Handler | Loader / Backhoe | Boom Truck | Aerial Lift / Scissor Lift | Dock Mounted Crane | RoughTerrain Crane | Overhead Crane | Confined Space | Vehicle Mounted Aerial Platform (Bucket Truck) | Trench Safety | Excavator | Articulated Boom Truck

GS320 Wireless Wind Speed Display

  • GS320 Wind Speed Display/Receiver
  • Features:

    • Displays the current wind value on a large, brightly lit LED display
    • Users can set a wind speed alarm level
    • The LSI Wind Speed System consists of: GS320 Wind Speed Display/Receiver, Display Power Cable and GS025 Wireless Battery-Powered Anemometer (GS025 Anemometer has the ability to communicate with the GS320, GS550 and GS820 Displays, and with the Gateway). Retrofits onto the mounting bracket of the previous model of LSI wind speed sensor for an easy upgrade
    • Users can display wind speed units in mile per hour or meters per second
    • Line of sight communication range: 4,000 feet (1,300 meters)
    • Has the ability to output a lockout signal to engage hydraulic solenoid valves (or output the alarm signal to an external light or siren)

New Rule for Cranes and Derricks in Construction--Summary

Federal OSHA revised its rules for cranes and derricks used in construction to update and specify industry work practices necessary to protect employees during the use of cranes and derricks in construction.

Following are highlights of provisions of the new rules that apply to employers and other entities in control of crane and derrick equipment during construction operations.

Crane operator certification in states and municipalities with operator licensing rules. All crane and derrick operators in states and municipalities with operator licensing laws must be licensed to operate by the effective date of such laws.

Crane operator training in states without operator licensing rules. From November 8, 2010 until November 10, 2014 (i.e., the phase-in period), operators must be trained to operate the equipment and must be evaluated to confirm that the operator understands the information provided in the training. See the CRANE PERSONNEL TRAINING CHART for information.

Qualifications for rigger, signal person, and other personnel. Riggers and signal persons must meet specific qualification requirements in order to perform their tasks. Other personnel in the work zone must be trained to recognize hazards associated with the use of the equipment and any related duties that they are assigned to perform. See the CRANE PERSONNEL TRAINING CHART for more information.
