Articulating Boom Loader Crane

Do you know about the articulating boom crane? Is it a crane? Is it a forklift?

Here is what OSHA states pertaining to Articulating Boom Loader Cranes.

29 CFR 1926.1400 Sub-part CC Scope exclusions (c)(17) Material Delivery
(i) Articulating/knuckle-boom truck cranes that deliver material to a construction site when used to transfer materials from the truck crane to the ground, without arranging the materials in a particular sequence for hoisting.
(ii) Articulating/knuckle-boom truck cranes that deliver material to a construction site when the crane is used to transfer building supply sheet goods or building supply packaged materials from the truck crane onto a structure, using a fork/cradle at the end of the boom, but only when the truck crane is equipped with a properly functioning automatic overload prevention device. Such sheet goods or packaged materials include, but are not limited to: sheets of sheet rock, sheets of plywood, bags of cement, sheets
or packages of roofing shingles, and rolls of roofing felt.  (iii) This exclusion does not apply when:
(A) The articulating/knuckle-boom crane is used to hold, support or stabilize the material to facilitate a construction activity, such as holding material in place while it is attached to the structure;
(B) The material being handled by the articulating knuckle boom crane is a prefabricated component. Such prefabricated components include. but are not limited to: precast
concrete members or panels, roof trusses (wooden, cold formed metal, steel, or other material), prefabricated building sections such as, but not limited to: floor panels, wall panels, roof panels, roof structures, or similar items:
(C) The material being handled by the crane is a structural steel member (for example, steel joists, beams, columns, steel decking (bundled or un-bundled) or a component of a systems-engineered metal building (as defined in 29 CFR 1926 subpart R).

We want to congratulate the first set of employees at Delta Gypsum to complete their qualifications for the Articulating Boom Loader Mobile Crane.

If you have questions concerning the articulating boom crane whether it is a loader, winch or hoist contact us at CCTI for clarification.

Welcome to Virginia

As we move from North Carolina to Virginia to continue with the Service Truck Operator Training for James River Equipment, we have once again found some very dedicated operators.

Our first week in Virginia was in a town called Manassas. This small town was very friendly and even had a train station. Used this train station to travel to Washington, D.C. over the weekend.

The employees here at Manassas used many different techniques to demonstrate the various types of rigging necessary to lift some of the heavy equipment they service on a regular basis.

Congratulations to all who attended the service truck operator and overhead crane training in Manassas, Virginia.

Raleigh NC Service Truck Operators

Week 2 in Raleigh North Carolina completed and a large number of Service Truck Operators are on the road repairing heavy equipment. Using the service truck is a must for this company. Providing training for all of their employees throughout the North Carolina and Virginia required many weeks of dedication for the instructor and the employees of James River Equipment. Being trained and qualified per the OSHA Mobile Crane Operator Standards was not taken lightly by the Safety Department or company.

Thanks for the opportunity to provide the training for the service truck operators.

Below are some pictures of the employees practicing their honed skills.
