Crane Operation safety | Sharing for learn


The potential for hazards and risks associated with crane lifting operations is paramount.

In order to reduce the risks and dangers associated with the use of the crane, operators and handling personnel must take appropriate safety measures. A competent person should train personnel involved in crane operations during handling.


Crane Operation safety





Hazards associated with crane :


1) overturning the crane

2) Incorrect load balance

3) collision with obstacles

4) Fall of objects

5) mechanical failure

6) more loading

7) Excessive speeds / abrupt operations / braking.

8) Manual signaling / inappropriate communication.

9) Inadequate inspection and maintenance of the crane.

10) Unprotected / moving / rotating parts.

11) Incorrect use of stabilizers / floor coverings.

12) Touch overhead power lines / Work too close to power lines.

13) Age of the crane * to ensure adequate safety factors.








Planning before startup:


1) The assembly drawing must be prepared by a competent person.

2) Ensure that a competent person inspects machinery and equipment.

3) The green card must be displayed before use.

4) Position the outriggers with the base plate on a compact / rigid floor during use.

5) Determine the location of overhead power lines.

6) Know the conditions of the site (unstable ground or strong winds, for example).

7) Inform other site staff of lifting activities.

8) Barricade access in the swing radius.

9) Consider factors limiting the load.
10) Consider safe lifting principles during operation.

11) Integrity and stability of loads must be checked before lifting.





Crane operation





Crane operation:



1) Provide safe means of access and exit

2) The crane should only be used on firm, level ground that adequately supports the weight of the crane and loads.

3) The weight of the load must not exceed the safe workload.

4) Never swing or stop the crane suddenly.

5) The loads must not be dragged on the ground.

6) move the load at a safe speed

7) Before lifting, fully deploy the outriggers and make sure they are stable on the ground.

8) Adjust the length of the boom to make sure the crane operates within the safe radius.

9) The operator must use the sound / ring reversal alarm at the appropriate time.

10) Make sure there are no overhead lines near the lift / tilt area.

11) Make sure the signal man indicates / guides the operator.

12) Use guide ropes / tags to prevent material from swaying.

13) No one should work / stand under the suspended load.


Crane operator responsibilities include but are not limited to:


1) Be trained on the specific model of crane used.


2) Familiarize yourself with the load charts and all crane functions listed in the operator's manual.


3) Inspect and maintain the crane regularly / Daily checks and checks before use.

4) Check site conditions and coordinate all activities with site supervision.
