Crane Safety

This platform is dedicated to providing essential information and resources to ensure the safety and efficiency of all crane and hoist operations on our campus. Explore our guidelines, training materials, and inspection protocols as we work together to prioritize safety on campus for students, faculty, and staff.

The purpose of the Crane Safety Program is to establish safe work practices and inspection procedures for the operators of electric, manual, and hydraulic overhead and gantry cranes.  In addition, making sure the Idaho State University students, staff, and faculty are protected from potential hazards associated with the movement of equipment and materials using a crane, hoist, and other related equipment.
