Health And Safety Executive Warns About Mobile Crane Safety 22/01/2008

January 2008 sees a warning from the British Health and Safety executive surrounding the implementation of mobile cranes. Employers are being told that safe installation systems are integral when installing mobile cranes to avoid dangerous situations and accidents. brbr
It should be noted that this is not a warning restricted to British workplaces utilising mobile cranes. For example, the death of a young mobile crane operator in South Vancouver in Canada has seen a push for mobile crane certification in British Columbia. Currently, mobile crane operators in British Columbia are not required to have any formal experience or qualifications to operate mobile cranes. In response to the dangers this potentially caused for mobile crane operators, the government formed an independent body, the British Columbian Association for Crane Safety, to make sure that the operators of mobile cranes were certified. brbr
It is apparent that some companies operate their own certification process for individuals driving and operating mobile cranes, however, as this may not be the universal norm amongst employers who utilise mobile cranes, it cannot be denied that the certification for mobile crane use from the British Columbian Association for Crane Safety works towards safer implementation of mobile crane use.
