Start the New Year with Free Professional Development Opportunities
(January 2, 2019)
- Take advantage of two free webinars this winter. Shedding Light on Night Moves and Other OS/OW Driving Best Practices
, Jan. 23, 2 pm (EST) will feature Danny Cain, Safety/Risk Manager, Edwards Moving & Rigging, Inc. He will discuss how increasingly OS/OW permits are issued for night moves as a matter of “convenience” for purposes of reducing traffic congestion during day time hours. However, night transports have the potential to increase risks for both the transport crew and the general public at large. This webinar will help you identify best practices for transporting permit loads at night and will additionally cover general OS/OW driving best practices for route surveys, traffic control measures and emergency action plans. The webinar is sponsored by KHL and Lifting Gear Hire.
February’s free webinar, Navigating OSHA’s New Operator Qualification Rule
, Feb. 6, 2 pm (EST), will help answer your questions about OSHA’s final rule on Operator Qualification. The webinar will detail OSHA’s a three-step approach: Training, Certification and Evaluation. Learn who pays for training and certification; how employers should evaluate their operators and how often; what documentation is required; and what implications, if any, are there to existing crane operator certifications. Speakers Thom Sicklesteel, General Manager USA, Leavitt Cranes and Graham Brent, CEO, NCCCO will focus on key implications of this important development in the federal regulation of crane operations. The webinar is sponsored by KHL and Unified Logistics Operating Group.
