CICB Offers Free Safety Seminar for Crane and Rigging Managers and Supervisors
March 19, 2019 - Crane Inspection & Certification Bureau (CICB) will hold free seminars for crane and rigging industry managers and supervisors in both Orlando, Florida, and Houston on April 29th.
CICB is offering the seminars as a community service in recognition of Workers’ Memorial Day, OSHA National Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction, and Safe & Sound Week.
The three-hour manager and supervisor seminars will encompass the roles and responsibilities of the site supervisor, owner, operator, rigger, and lift director, along with safe operation and inspection of cranes and associated rigging gear.
In addition to those topics, the morning session will provide an in-depth view of OSHA’s three-fold approach for qualification of crane operators in construction: operator training for employees not yet certified to operate cranes; operator certification or license; and employer evaluation of certified operators.
The afternoon session will focus on the general industry requirements for overhead cranes and hoists, including safe operations, inspection, and associated rigging gear.
The seminars will include a networking barbecue lunch.
“These seminars will help managers, supervisors, and safety personnel understand OSHA and ASME crane and rigging requirements,” said Jerry Longtin, general manager of CICB. “By working together, our workers are safer, and our industry is stronger.”
