ICHC Presenter to Answer Audience Questions

TomReardon_rev1 MCM Events welcomes another speaker at the jointly held Crane & Rigging Conference and Industrial Crane & Hoist Conference at the Hampton Inn Hotel & Suites New Orleans-Convention Center, New Orleans, La. The conferences will take place May 23-24, 2012. Tom Reardon, Training Manager, Hoists and Cranes, for Columbus McKinnon Corporation, will provide an overview of OSHA 1910.179, as well as explore crane configurations, regulations, and standards for the industry.
“Many of us have experienced the concern prompted by crane inspection reports listing discrepancies as OSHA violations. Not all of these reports are accurate,” says Reardon. “Some confusion exists among crane and hoist owners, users, and service providers regarding crane configurations and the application of OSHA 1910.179 regulations.”

Reardon is inviting industry stakeholders to submit questions regarding standards and regulations, to which he will source answers from ASME/ANSI, OSHA, CMAA, etc., and share them with delegates at the end of his presentation.

Answering the Difficult Questions Asked by Hoist & Crane Technicians

Answering the Difficult Questions Asked by Hoist & Crane Technicians

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.
