Mobile Crane Inspection Checklist
As part of the Level A Assessment, crane operators must complete an inspection of their crane.
This checklist is a comprehensive reference tool from WorkSafeBC which provides specific OHS references for each aspect of safe crane set up and operation. There is also a crane lift capacity analysis section, where description and weights for load information can be added.
Although it was created for employers and used primarily by prevention officers to inspect mobile cranes in industry, this is a valuable tool to prepare for your Level A Assessment.
