Operating large machinery, such as cranes, is dangerous work. There are specific circumstances under which signal persons – or spotters – with special training are required to ensure that operations run smoothly and are as safe as possible. Effective communication between a signal person and a crane operator is required when the point of crane operation is not in full view of the operator, when the operator's view is obstructed in the direction the equipment is traveling, and when either the operator or the person handling the load determines that a signal person is needed for safety concerns. This course will provide you with an understanding of the qualification requirements for signal persons and considerations for communication between signal persons and crane operators. In this course, you will learn when a signal person is required, what hand signals they should use, and how to ensure safe communication between the signal person, the person handling the load, and the crane operator. This will allow the operation of mobile cranes in accordance with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)'s 'Signal Person Qualification' standards at part 29 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 1926.1428, and supporting information at 29 CFR parts 1419 through 1422. This course was developed with subject matter expert support provided by Strata-G, LLC, a global professional services company focusing on regulatory compliance, safety and health, infrastructure management and operations, and business services. Please note, the course materials and content were current with the laws and regulations at the time of the last expert review; however, they may not reflect the most current legal developments, location-specific, or facility/process-specific requirements.

Cryogenic Safety
Cryogenic materials are commonly used in the workplace for a variety of purposes, such as refrigeration, medical applications, and rocket propulsion. Due to their extremely cold temperatures, cryogenic materials can be hazardous if handled and stored incorrectly. Cryogenic materials are stored in specially designed containers known as dewars and any employees handling cryogenic materials must wear personal protective equipment. If exposed to the extreme cold of cryogenic materials, they should receive treatment immediately to prevent permanent injury. In the event that an individual inhales cryogenic materials, they should seek immediate attention to prevent serious injury or death. This course explains how to recognize different types of cryogenic materials in the workplace and identify the potential dangers of storing and handling these materials incorrectly. It identifies recommended equipment and the standard operating procedures for handling and storing cryogenic materials safely. It also describes the most effective course of action if accidents involving cryogenic materials occur, including recommended methods for treating employees injured by cryogenic materials.

Forklift Operation 2: Stability and Capacity
Forklift operation is a specialized job that requires operators to receive specific training. For instance, before operating a forklift, operators need to be familiar with its capabilities and limitations. This course specifies where to find information on safe forklift operation, and explains what this information means. It shows how features of forklift design impact forklift stability and capacity, and emphasizes that operators must be trained to safely operate forklifts according to their specific designs. The course highlights the concept of the stability triangle to help operators understand specific stability concerns presented by different load types, and shows how to safely accommodate these loads to avoid tipovers and falling loads. Finally, the course uses a field calculation to estimate safe load capacity for situations when a load exceeds the forklift's stated capacity. Forklift Operation 2: Stability and Capacity was developed with subject matter support provided by EnSafe Inc., a global professional services company focusing on engineering, environment, health and safety, and information technology.

Forklift Operation 3: Load Handling
Forklifts are an important tool used in many industries, but they present many hazards to their operators. The good news is that many of these hazards can be avoided, if not eliminated, when operators are trained to properly operate and load a forklift. Some basic practices can be used to improve safe load handling – for example, driving the forks as far under the load as possible. More specific practices for approaching, lifting, and lowering a load can also help forklift operators improve load handing safety as they perform each of these actions. Armed with this knowledge, forklift operators will be better prepared to safely load the forklifts they operate. Forklift Operation 3: Load Handling was developed with subject matter support provided by EnSafe Inc., a global professional services company focusing on engineering, environment, health and safety, and information technology.
