FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Overhead cranes, also called industrial cranes or overhead traveling cranes are used to move extremely heavy or bulky loads. They are most commonly found in industrial and maintenance environments where efficiency, downtime, and floorspace are critical factors. Overhead cranes are commonly found in the following work environments:

  • Storage & warehouses
  • Automotive industry
  • Heavy equipment repair
  • Metal manufacturing
  • Concrete manufacturing
  • Power plants
  • Ship building
  • Aviation
  • Transportation & Shipping
Overhead crane training is necessary because overhead cranes are widely used in a number of manufacturing and maintenance environments. They move massive loads overhead, and the improper use of an overhead crane can be catastrophic. In order to safely operate an overhead crane, there are many safety protocols to follow, such as knowing the limits of the machinery, the weight of loads being carried, how to properly carry loads, how to be aware and safely operate in an environment with an overhead crane and more.
Overhead cranes are extremely useful in the workplace, however with improper use they have potential to cause serious injuries or even death. Our overhead crane safety course will help you be fully prepared to work with or near overhead cranes, however here are some basic safety tips to keep in mind:
