The responsibilities included in the safe crane operation consists of checking for hydraulic leaks, undertaking visual inspections, checking the safety guards, testing the controls, examining the hook and hoist rope, braking mechanisms and limit switches. Right reporting methods are important. These subject matters are all covered in depth in the program.
