Crane Standard Update
The announcement heavily emphasizes that all Crane Operators will be formally tested by an authorized company. The primary thing that I see that is missing is that it DOES NOT address any required training for Riggers and Supervisors of lifting operations. The Operators are limited as to what they can do from the Operator's Cab. The riggers are the ones who do all the attachment that go on the hooks. The Supervisors are the ones who, ultimately are the ones that oversee the whole operation and safe lifting of the load. ALL THREE GROUPS SHOULD BE TRAINED AND BE ABLE TO READ THE CRANE'S LOAD CHART AND SHOULD KNOW THE WEIGHT OF THE LOAD.
