Safety Protocols for Construction Crane Operators: Rayco Wylie Edition

Crane operators are responsible for maneuvering cranes around the construction site. You should hire crane operators with certifications and years of experience under their belts to ensure they can carry out complex lifting projects with control and precision. A detailed background check and verification is necessary to ensure safety.

However, that’s not enough. As an employer, it’s your responsibility to ensure construction safety. Establishing safety protocols for construction crane operators is a crucial step to make sure all crane-related activities at construction sites are carried out safely. Let’s check out some protocols that your crane operators should follow.

Safety Protocols for Construction Crane Operators

Crane Inspection

Before commencing the lifting job, a crane operator should perform a detailed inspection of the crane and load. It may include checking booms and cables, assessing the weight and load, reading manufacturers’ guide to confirm the lift capacity, and other relevant factors to ensure safety during the lifting operations.

Creating a work zone

Construction sites are full of workers, supervisors, and personnel. Using cranes while people are working underneath is a significant hazard. In the case of crane malfunctions, it can lead to fatal injuries. Crane operators should identify a radius which should be closed for everyone with caution tape and cones.

Stop operations during Inclement weather

When working on deadlines, crane operators and supervisors might try continuing crane operations during inclement weather conditions. However, it’s not a good idea. Wind gusts and harsh weather conditions can cause the load, or even the crane, to tip over, which can lead to severe injuries and property damages.

Avoid overloading the crane

Again, when deadlines are looming, crane operators might try to pace themselves by lifting more than the recommended amount of load from the crane. It can be a fatal mistake, which can result in catastrophic accidents. Educate crane operators about the potential risks and provide them channels to complain if they’re under undue pressure from their supervisor.

Using crane safety systems

Crane safety instrumentation should be made available to crane operators. They must be trained to use them regularly to take out the guesswork and ensure precision during lifts. Tools like Rayco Wylie’s ATB systems, load indicators, and CSS cameras can significantly reduce the risk of overloading and other hazards.
