COVID and Operator Training Changes for the Balance of ’20 and Into 2021

With all of the changes that have happened and likely the ones to come throughout the winter season, our crane operator safety program has been updated to reflect these new COVID updates.

We are continuing to follow the guidelines as set by Alberta Health with respect to keeping safe distances apart.

In a scenario whereby you might have 6 operators, your shop or office area needs to be able to accommodate that spacing requirement for the morning theory sessions.

The afternoon practical is done in the same manner that it has always been, for example, the safety walk around, inspections and such are conducted with proper spacing and if necessary, masks depending on your companies policy around this procedure.  We do wear safety gloves regardless and typically PPE is always used so the afternoon portion is generally status quo.

We do NOT have a online version as the practical is still an integral part of the operator safety program and we have been advised that these protocols and COVID safety standards will be with us well into 2021, so to that end it simply would not be efficient.

We do bring masks and latex gloves as well as hand-sanitizer to all of our program sessions.
