Qualified Signal Person (On-Site)

Make sure your signal persons meet current OSHA §1926 Subpart CC requirements as a competent person. Federal OSHA §1926.1428 currently requires that persons who signal cranes in construction activities receive training and testing to qualify as competent. This training also satisfies the Mobile Crane standard ASME B30.5-3.3.3 Signalperson Qualifications and other industry regulations.

The objectives of Qualified Signal Person training is to ensure that each signal person is in compliance with the requirements of Federal OSHA §1926 Subpart CC as a “Qualified Signal Person,” and these persons understand mobile crane characteristics, crane limitations, helping the operator avoid side loading, power line safety, and most important – where a signal person must position themselves to ensure adequate personal safety and communications with the crane operator.

Specific Training Objectives:

  • Terminology of the new standard
  • Crane characteristics & limitations
  • Signal person responsibilities
  • When a signal person is required
  • Hand and voice signals
  • The dangers of side loading
  • Crane dynamics as it pertains to a signal person
  • The dangers of two-blocking
  • Tipping and structural failures
  • The dangers of working around power lines
  • The clearance requirements for cranes and power lines
  • The course of action if power line contact is made
  • Step and touch potential
  • The requirements to keep clear of the load (Fall zone)
  • The requirements of §1926 Subpart CC as it pertains to a signal person
