In this space we’ll be posting news articles of interest to heavy equipment operators in the state of Iowa as we see them. Some of these articles will be accident or citation reports while others may be new initiatives by OSHA that are happening specifically in Iowa.
While all states must follow federal guidelines when it comes to operating cranes, forklifts, excavators, and other heavy equipment, state regulations can and do change. When we find out about any of those changes, we will post them here also for your information.
Cranes101 offers nationally accredited crane licensing, which are federally required for operators. If your operators need licensing, please contact us to set up a class for them at your site, on your equipment. The Crane Rule update also requires that your operators, in addition to a license, be qualified on the equipment they run on the job-site. Cranes101 can perform those qualifications on-site.
Cranes101 also offers many other construction and industrial safety courses, available online and in all 50 states. Check out our courses page to learn more.
Need your equipment inspected according to federal guidelines? Our sister company CATS can do that. Our NCCCO-certified inspectors will travel to your job-site to do your third-party equipment inspections. Find out more here.
