The Cranes And Material Handling course introduces participants to various types of mobile cranes and provides intermediate information concerning crane operations, inspection, maintenance, load charts, and corresponding Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards. During the course, scenario-based exercises are used to help students apply proper OSHA and American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards. During exercises students are led through procedures required to properly review load charts and rigging tables; all designed to help prevent accidents.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
TEEX and the OSHA Training Institute (OTI) have an attendance policy that requires participants to fully attend an enrolled class in its entirety (100% of the course). We realize that extenuating circumstances may arise that would take a participant out of class and have a policy to handle those situations. If a participant misses less than 20% of the class, he/she may be able to perform makeup work equivalent to the class time missed. If 20% or more of the class is missed, the participant may attend a makeup course upon approval by TEEX’s OTI Education Center Director.
