Your crane operators are the people who will be operate machinery and equipment every day, so they will be responsible for the vast majority of the practical application of health and safety within your business. If they are not well trained, this is where accidents can happen. By ensuring your crane operators are well trained and fully competent, you can dramatically reduce risks that you could face in the crane industry.
When a new member of staff joins your team, you will need to make sure there is a proper training and induction process. Even if they have industry experience and know the specific type of jib crane or bridge crane they will be using, for example, they will still need to be trained and assessed. Having a full health and safety and training policy in place will help you with the administration of this, making sure everybody receives adequate training and this is updated regularly.
