While the rule officially states that signal persons need to be qualified, rather than certified by a “qualified evaluator,” certification by an organization such as NCCCO meets this requirement.  Qualification can be either through a third-party qualified evaluator (such as an accredited certification body) or through an employer’s qualified evaluator. All signal persons must be qualified and pass a written or oral test and a practical test, and the qualification must be documented.

All workers who will participate in signaling or flagging a crane, giving direction as to where and what will be lifted, must be qualified when:

  • Point of operation is not in full view of the operator
  • View of direction of travel is obstructed
  • Site-specific safety condition

Crainco offers qualified signal persons training classes. Call to schedule your class today.

All of Crainco’s crane operators are certified through the NCCCO, National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators, program and hold various certifications for the different of cranes.

Employers are always required and must continuously ensure that their operators are certified for the type of crane or cranes they will be operating. Additionally, employers must also ensure each operator is evaluated for their competency for each piece of equipment they will be operating.

Riggers: Crainco offers both Qualified and Certified Riggers and there is a difference. OSHA does not require a Certified Rigger, however, we offer both to fulfill our client’s requirements.

Signal Person: Crainco offers a Qualified Signal Person for your job site needs.  We also offer Signal Person Training Classes to get your crew qualified.

Let us help you with that.  To properly size and select a crane, there are many factors.  We can get that done for you if you have some basic information. 

Basic information needed are the following:

  • Height of the structure that we will be lifting onto
  • Distance from the edge of the structure to the center of the placement of the load
  • Weight of the item to be lifted
  • Distance the crane will set up away from the structure
  • Any obstructions? (power lines, trees, chimney, awning, etc)
  • Will the crane set up on private or public property?

Once you have these basic items, call one of our Crainco Experts today and we will walk you through any additional information that may be required.
