as the NCCCO, or qualified through
an audited employer program." Also,
operators should perform operational
inspections to ensure everything is
functioning properly before going
out on every job. Little things like a
hydraulic line leaking a bit or a cable
that's slightly frayed but seems to
be okay cannot be tolerated. Going
back to our installation example
above, the operator/installer must
keep both feet firmly planted on the
floor of the basket. Don't even think
about a step stool.
This means you need to factor in
the cost of additional safety equipment that should be onboard at all
times. Safety cones ought to be used
to warn motorists and pedestrians
of the presence of the crane. If the
installers will be working with anything above their heads, then they will
need hard hats. A fire extinguisher
should, of course, be available. If the
truck is parked on a non-level surface,
then the tires must be chocked.
Probably one of the most important
safety items is a fall-protection system.

This is not as simple as a safety belt
latched onto a rail of the bucket. It
must ensure that a fall will not allow
the person to hit any of the fittings
on the crane or truck. Most of the
crane companies can provide a system
or help in locating one.
Crane trucks are a great way to

add additional revenue to your shop
by not only keeping installations
in-house, but by helping you tap into
markets that may have otherwise been
out of reach, so to speak. Whatever
you do, make sure your people are
properly trained and equipped to
keep it safe for everyone.
