The American Heritage Foundation is warning against the use of crane travel alerts, which would have given the government greater control over how a crane operator operates his crane.
The warning, issued to crane operators by the Institute for Safe and Appropriate Crane Operations, notes that the Federal Aviation Administration requires operators to notify the FAA if there are changes to the crane’s control system, or if they’re required to take other steps to improve safety.
The FAA requires operators of commercial cranes to notify authorities if there is a change in crane control system or any other safety risk.
However, in the event of an emergency, operators can only be held liable if they did not notify authorities.
The crane travel warning applies to all types of cranes, including cargo cranes and electric cranes.
It was developed by the FAA to prevent the accidental release of deadly gases that could be deadly to workers or passengers on board.
In the event that the crane operator fails to notify a law enforcement officer within 24 hours, or when a fire breaks out on the crane, they would be liable for any damages, including death and serious bodily injury.
The American Heritage advisory states that the “use of a crane alarm is not necessary for all types” of crane operations.
The report also notes that in the United States, the “crane travel alert is not mandated by federal law and has not been used by the federal government in the last 20 years.”
The Crane Travel Alerts are not currently on the FAA’s list of mandatory safety procedures.
However there are a number of other safety measures that are in place, including fire safety training, inspections, inspections of the crane control systems, and mandatory fire and explosion tests.
Crane operators who are using the crane travel warnings are still required to notify FAA officials if they change the crane system.
