Abstract: Crane operators control mobile or stationary cranes to lift, move andplace objects at locations such as building and construction sites, wharves andshipyards. This activity occurs all over theworld and is a high risk task with many noted examples of seriousincidents and accidents. There are identifiable key causes that have been notedthrough analysis of the well documented cases andmany of these causes are preventable through effective training programs.Internationally, there are not currently consistent approaches to craneoperator training program content or duration. Leading causes of crane accidentsare firstly discussed and identified as areas for inclusion in trainingprograms. A number of current training approaches from a range of countries arethen considered and these are used to outlinethe basis of a generic competency standardfor crane operation, as it was found that there are not common standards in place. The proposed competency standard can be adapted by trainingregulators, training providers, government agencies, industry bodies and enterprises as a benchmark for the development of effectivetraining programs.
