CrewSafe, the newest assessment program developed by CICA, was launched in Western Australia on May 25, 2018.
Onsite, safety is paramount. So, the Crane Industry Council of Australia (CICA) has worked with crane owners, equipment manufacturers and trainers, both in Australia and internationally, to develop CrewSafe.
Representatives from the mining and construction sectors attended the new FREO Group state-of-the-art facility for a hands-on demonstration of CrewSafe. While bad weather prevented an outdoor demonstration, the sizeable workshop at FREO group in Hope Valley lent itself to an excellent CrewSafe display. Using a Liebherr LTM1055-3.2 crane, the operator demonstrated his competence and skill by setting up the crane and successfully navigating the obstacle course without hitting any tennis balls in the allocated time.
Cranes are all different, and the CrewSafe assessment modules are designed to be machine-specific, reflecting the current state of knowledge and best practice. All assessments are filmed, documented, and accessible on the CrewSafe app so site supervisors and crane operators have a centralised point of reference.
The CrewSafe launch gave the attendees a clear understanding of how it can protect their crew, crane, and reputation.
