Crane Rescue Training

Our Crane Rescue training course is a three day (24 hour) course designed for crane riggers, operators and maintenance personnel who are required to perform work on tower and luffing cranes.

Tower cranes present significant height safety issues for operators and riggers who must carry out work on these structures safely.  Likewise, the difficulties involved in retrieving an injured or unconscious operator from a tower crane, especially from the jib, are often overlooked and frequently put into the ‘too hard’ basket’.


Course Outline
The Tower Crane Rescue Course was originally designed at the request of a crane erection company to identify issues of worker safety and has since become one of the leading programs of its kind available.  Subjects covered include:-

  • risk assessments for crane work
  • relevant industry standards of practice
  • risk assessments for crane work
  • PPE for working on cranes and at height
  • work positioning and fall protection systems
  • Harness Hang Syndrome and patient management
  • mid rope self & partner rescues.
Students conduct a number of realistic scenarios during the course that deal with realistic work based rescue situations whilst identifying the different rescue ‘zones’ of a crane.
