1. Cranes dangerous, Kent County Jail
2. Save a life?
3. OSHA Training [ (America, 1992) ]

3. Show cinch and types of cinches. [ (America, 1992) ]. 4. Adjust cinch and show spreader bar [ (America, 1992) ] 5. Direct crane to operator [ (SS Crane & Rigging, 2012) ] 6. Place the load and direct back to rigger [ (BrassMeIn.com, 2012) ]
Transition: These are the most common signals used; there is no way I could show you every signal there is.
1. Everyone on site around the crane should know these proper hand signals and rigging procedures to maintain a safe construction site. 2. The rigger should safely direct the operator to his load and then cinch it up. 3. A load should always be tested at a very low height before being transported. 4. The rigger then directs the operator to the laborer.
5. After the load is securely in place, the laborer directs the operator back to the rigger, and starts the process all over again. 6. Questions?
