SC&RA Cranes and Derricks Standard Webinar - Dec. 9

SC&RA and OSHA Webinar
On December 9, from noon to 1:30 p.m. (Eastern Time), SC&RA, in partnership with the KHL Group, will present a webinar on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s new standard for cranes and derricks in construction. Bill Smith, Senior Vice President, Risk Management, at NBIS will summarize the standard and steps crane and rigging businesses must take to comply and avoid citations. He also will provide information on the American Society of Mechanical Engineers B 30.5 2007 mobile cranes standard. NBIS is the exclusive Gold Sponsor of this webinar and SC&RA’s exclusively endorsed provider of property and casualty insurance.

Registration for this event, available online, is only $29 for members and $49 for non-members. You must register by December 8 to participate. For more information, please contact SC&RA at (703) 698-0291.

SC&RA has also developed a new Crane Hand Signals mobile app for both the iPhone and Blackberry. Members now have access to Crane Hand Signals as a free mobile app, available in the iTunes App Store and Blackberry App World. The Crane Operator Hand Signals app gives users instant access to all necessary crane hand signals. Every signal included is compliant with the new OSHA Cranes and Derricks Standard. Each signal is shown graphically so that operators can quickly and easily reference the appropriate signal for each command. All signals are available in English and Spanish.
