Overhead Crane Operator

Overhead Crane Operator in McDonough, GA

Overhead crane operators usually run cranes in industrial settings, such as manufacturing plants or warehouses, to lift and relocate heavy objects, such as raw materials or pieces of equipment. These operators must undergo proper training before gaining certification to handle these machines onsite. At Crane Safety Associates of America, Inc. in McDonough, GA, we offer the overhead crane operator training necessary to equip operators to safely and competently run an overhead crane.

Overhead Crane Operator Responsibilities

Overhead crane operators must be able to read various documents, maps, and charts that help them perform crane operations safely and efficiently within the workspace. A crane operator must also have keen awareness of the space around him or her in order to properly position the crane when lifting or lowering items.

The various responsibilities of overhead crane operators include:

  • Operating the crane safely
  • Inspecting equipment and structures for safety and stability
  • Coordinating with other construction workers for the removal and installation of equipment and materials
  • Maintaining log books of crane operations, maintenance activities, and equipment inspections
  • Observing the work of others to ensure it meets good construction practices and safety standards.
