An excerpt from ISNetworld® RAVS®* Safety plan Crane Operator - Offshore Program

Many crane accidents or failures are the result of operational errors. These errors range from not checking control functions to overloading the crane. While no amount of training will prevent human error, training should be provided to minimize the occurrence of operational errors. The training program should be tailored to the particular crane(s) or crane type(s) for which the operator is to be qualified.

Crane operators will be designated based on who have appropriate offshore experience and training which must comprise of minimum amounts of classroom sessions and hands-on training which will cover lubricating points, adjustments, principles of crane operators, load charts, hand signals and inspections. Training should include use of fire extinguishers. [1]
Hands-on proficiency is the last segment of crane operator qualification training. It should be held on a crane similar to the type of crane to be operated by the qualifying operator, in order to allow the qualifying
operator to demonstrate his or her ability. Refresher training is required every four years. [2] Crane operator qualifications must be maintained every four years and shall include vision and medical condition evaluations. [6]
The American Petroleum Institute (API) physical requirements are: vision of at least 20/30 Snellen in one eye and 20/50 in the other eye with or without glasses, have depth perception, and be able to distinguish between red, yellow, and green; hearing, with or without a hearing aid, adequate for the specific operation; and no history of a disabling medical condition which may be sufficient reason for disqualification. [5]
During periods of bad weather, such as lightning or high winds, or where the Operator’s ability to see the signal person is impaired by darkness, fog, rain, etc., crane operations should be restricted, at the operator’s discretion.
