On-site

Mobile boom cranes are an essential piece of equipment required for safe and efficient material handling on construction and industrial job sites. Competent operators that apply what they have been taught, contribute to overall site safety through their training, knowledge and experience.

Failure to have competent operators has led to tip overs, boom collapses, contact with power lines, or uncontrolled hoisted loads. This has resulted in injury or loss to life, product and property. This course will provide participants with the necessary knowledge required to properly identify hazards, inspect, and safely operate the equipment.

In order for an operator to receive a certificate of competency, successful completion of theory and practical testing is required.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify hazards specific to the equipment and job site
  • Identify and discuss common crane components
  • Perform thorough pre-operational inspections
  • Discuss stability principle and load charts
  • Execute a safe lift plan
  • Identify safe hoisting and operating techniques
  • Discuss relevant legislation

Equipment Evaluation

Upon completion of the theory portion of the program, a hands-on practical evaluation is required to complete the certification. OSG recommends that practical evaluations be completed within 90 days of completing the theory portion of the program.

Target Audience

Mobile boom crane operators, worksite supervisors/managers
