Whether you want all terrain crane training and certification in as little as two hours with our online training or a more robust, customizable option like you get with our DIY training kits or on-site training, we can help you get the all terrain crane safety training you want in the way you want it and at a price you can afford.
Our All Terrain Crane safety training course is OSHA compliant, and our online version fulfills OSHA’s classroom training requirement. Each class contains sections on anatomy and components, stability principles, rigging considerations, safe operations, common hazards, and more.
In this training, we look at the anatomy and functions of all terrain cranes in general, focusing on components examined during pre-shift inspections. We also discuss crane operation and stability principles, addressing why you should know your truck’s capabilities and work within those limits. We will also teach you about load charts and how to properly utilize them.
The course also covers the safety considerations for operating a crane, including proper setup and rigging principles. It also reviews some of the common crane hand signals that can help you ensure good communication on the job site.
Finally, it covers the more common hazards involving all terrain cranes, as well as how to recognize, avoid, or minimize them. We will also present a few case studies to help illustrate these points.
This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam as required by regulations.
Though you will still need to familiarize yourself with all other applicable federal, state, and local standards, this training encompasses the following OSHA standards for all terrain cranes:
In line with regulations, anyone who operates all terrain cranes must receive training prior to operating on their own. Requirements for refresher training related to forklifts or other processes are very specific. Most other equipment doesn’t have such specific requirements, but it’s wise to follow the same guidelines.
When it comes to refresher training, the standards in some instances (like forklifts) are very specific: operators must be re-evaluated every three years to see if they are still competent to operate the equipment. Best practices say to apply this same rule to all types of equipment. A so-called “free-pass” cannot be awarded based on experience, age, or time on the job. The extent of the evaluation is to be determined by the employer but should include a written and practical examination that proves continued competency.
All terrain cranes can have up to nine axles, each of which can carry up to 12 tons.
They can lift up to 1,200 tons.
There are seven different types of cranes that can be found on the worksite:
• Telescopic crane
• Mobile cranes
• Truck mounted cranes
• Rough terrain cranes
• Overhead cranes
• Loader cranes
