    Why Do I Need Safety Training?

    In line with regulations, anyone who operates heavy equipment must receive training prior to operating the machine on their own. Requirements for refresher training and other processes are very specific. Most other equipment doesn’t have such specific OSHA training requirements, but it’s wise to follow the same guidelines.

    When it comes to refresher health and safety 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 prove continued competency.

    Did You Know?

    Germany has one of the most powerful mobile cranes ever built: the Liebherr LTM 11200-9.1.

    The LTM can lift 1200 metric tons, which is equivalent to 700 automobiles.

    The LTM is also the longest telescopic boom in the world at 100 meters (about 109 yards). Source: Fieldlens.com

    Boom Truck Frequently Asked Questions

    How far can a boom truck reach?

    Though the maximum heights vary from model to model, the maximum height that a boom truck can reach in general is about 185 feet (56.4 m).

    Can you use a boom truck as a crane?

    Unless your specific boom truck is equipped for rigging operations, you should never use a boom lift as a crane. They do not have the same lifting capacity or moving power. Even if your boom truck is equipped for rigging operations, it is important to keep the lifting capacity in mind before you lift anything.

    At what wind speeds can you not operate a boom truck?

    Though there are more factors to keep in mind than just wind, it is important not to operate a boom truck when there is excessive wind. This could cause it to tip over. Regulations say to avoid operating a boom truck or other aerial lift when the wind is stronger than 20 mph (32.2 kph)
