Developed in consultation with the mobile crane industry as a whole, CraneSafe augments existing safety standards with annual assessments of mobile cranes.
The CraneSafe assessment program provides crane owners and operators with a:
- Process for third party assessment of safety aspects of their cranes
- Standardised, industry-wide system for assessment of their cranes
- Single method by which crane operators, owners, manufacturers, suppliers, designers and importers may fulfill their relevant duty of care obligations under the State Occupational Health and Safety Acts (OH&S)
The CraneSafe assessment program is voluntary, however crane owners and users have a duty of care obligation under individual State OH&S (Plant) Regulations to ensure that their cranes are in a safe condition. Click here to download the CraneSafe flyer.
CraneSafe does not determine the commercial arrangements between independent endorsed assessors and CraneSafe program users. CraneSafe has estimated the time that should be allocated for an assessor to complete a CraneSafe assessment for each type of crane to assist CraneSafe program users in budgeting time and resources. These estimates are based on crane availability, operator availability and test weight availability at the time of assessment. Crane assessment times.
