Tool Box Talk Hand Signals for Hoist and Crane Operations Mobile App
The Tool Box Talk Hand Signals for Hoist and Crane Operations is an app that can be used to open up discussions among workers about why it is important for hoist and crane operators to use proper hand signals.
How does it work?
Construction workers doing hoisting work, or crane operators using mobile cranes, overhead cranes, or other lifting devices should be well versed in proper hand signals to promote safety and well-being of individuals involved, or near, a lifting operation. Crane safety and hoisting safety is incredibly important as the danger of loads falling from high places can be deadly. Accordingly, communicating effectively, especially when loud noises and/or hearing protection preclude the use of verbal communications, are important in construction operations.
