TOWER CRANE AWARENESS TRAINING
ABOUT THE COURSE
Construction of high rises building is impossible without hoisting machinery such as tower crane which is important in alleviating construction activity and capacity. The Tower Crane Awareness Training is designed to define the work practices and the inspection procedures to help ensure that the operators of the tower cranes are protected from potential hazards associated with the movement of equipment and material. Operation and safety practices of tower crane operation need to comply with legal requirements under OSHA 1994 and Factories and Machinery Act 1967.
The operation of cranes and lifting gear must be carried out by a trained and certified person and approved equipment. If not, there is a high potential for injury or accident. Therefore, before the operation, the equipment, its location, the setup and its usage must be examined.
