Cranes Chronicles – October 2022 – 93rd Edition

October Thoughts

We get many questions about training records: their importance as well as how best to keep them. Our Safety Management Portals allows you to create, view, and maintain your student profiles, including any state or federal license numbers, what courses they have taken, and any certificates they have earned with Cranes101. There is even a space where you can add outside certifications or licenses earned in every student profile. But what else do you need to keep to round out your employee’s safety file? While the state(s) your company does business in may have differing requirements, we recommend keeping the following information: Scanned copies of any pertinent licenses, front and back, including CDL, driver’s license, hoisting license, etc.Any safety violation write-up Any required OSHA filings regarding illness and/or injury sustained on the jobHaving robust safety files for every employee is crucial, especially in the event of an accident. Your liability will be much reduced with this kind of robust record-keeping. Jay and his wife Marlo love giving back to the local community. They recently became members of the Uxbridge Lions Club, which had a car show on October 15 at the Valley Chapel. This event had over 100 cars, and Jay was one of the judges! The Lions Club supports many local humanitarian causes, particularly in helping low-income folks get glasses and hearing aids. 

Our trade show season continues! In November, we’ll be at the TCIA Expo in Charlotte, NC, and then we’ll be at the International Workboat Show in New Orleans. Then in December, we have a booth at LBM Expo at Mohegan Sun! So be sure to say hi to Jack and Kizy at those shows if you’re at any of these shows. Finally, we are proud to announce we are now a direct partner with NCCER. We went through an auditing process, part of which involved our trainer Mamuzo Edhebru-Bonny giving a practical exam. Who was the student? Our very own Christine ran the crane, which all of the office staff do at one point or another, in order for us to understand our industry that much better. And being a direct partner with NCCER will benefit us all as we can provide more excellent service. Be sure to contact us regarding your mobile crane operator certification.
