Crane Safety for the Competent Person

This Cranes & Derricks Safety for the Competent Person Course has been developed for those workers who need a more in-depth understanding of the many facets of a crane job site and the safety requirements and responsibilities of each of the different worker roles that make up a crane operation.  These roles include the signal person, rigger, operator, and the competent person on a crane job site.

OSHA deems a competent person to be a necessity on every job site and is some one who has sufficient experience and/or knowledge to recognize crane hazards, correct unsafe conditions, and who has the ability to shut down the worksite until any hazards are corrected. The competent person should be the most knowledgeable person, in this case about crane safety, on the work site.

eTraining’s Cranes & Derricks for the Competent Person course ensures that a student will receive all of the proper training pursuant to OSHAs requirement of Competent Persons for this standard 29 CFR 1926.1400.  This course will go beyond the basic awareness level of introductory courses and into details necessary when learning not just how to protect yourself, but what it takes to create a safe working environment for those you may be responsible for.

eTraining fully endorses the national certification program offered by the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO), and will prepare candidates for the CCO certification examinations.

Course Details

This fully narrated course is broken up into 11 units and is approximately 9-10 hours in length.  There will be knowledge check quizzes throughout these units to help keep the learner on pace.  These quizzes will prepare you for the final, which you will take at the end of the course.
