Answering the Difficult Questions Asked by Hoist & Crane Technicians


by  on March 23, 2010

ICHCThe opening session for the Industrial Crane & Hoist Conference (ICHC), to be held May 26-27, 2010, in Houston, Texas is sure to set the tone for the rest of event.

Peter Cooke, Corporate Trainer for Columbus McKinnon, will start off the education sessions by sharing insight on OSHA and ANSI safety topics as they pertain to hoist and crane operations. Columbus McKinnon, based in Amherst, N.Y., recently gathered more than 100 common questions asked by crane and hoist operators, inspectors, technicians, maintenance personnel, and plant supervisors. With the assistance of OSHA and ASME members, these questions were translated based on current industry regulations and standards. Highlights from that research will be shared during the session. At the conclusion of the seminar, attendees will be able to obtain a copy of the full report, assisting them with implementing these safety practices.

The Industrial Crane & Hoist Conference is owned by Maximum Capacity Media, publisher of Industrial Lift and Hoist magazine.
