Tower Crane Operator Safety Day

In lifting operations, Laing O’Rourke comply with the current legislation, however, policies and procedures of other construction companies can differ from theirs. For the team it can feel confusing at times working to different standards.

Additionally tower crane operators can find themselves lone working on projects and not see colleagues/friends for long periods of time leaving them feeling remote and unaware of the company’s direction/future. Communication tends to take place over the phone with little face to face contact from their direct management.

They set up a quarterly Tower Crane Operators Safety Day, to bring together all Select Tower Crane Operators working across sites in the north-west (including those working in the external market). A typical agenda would include: an update from The Factory Project Lead, Select Lifting Solutions H&S Manager, Principal Engineer, Senior Resource Manager and Business Stream Leader. The sessions included, a review of safety incidents, discussions around lifting policies and procedures, innovations, business look-ahead, as well an opening the floor to the operators.

This forum brings together crane operators/colleagues that may not have worked together for some time and share their working projects, everyday lift occurrences, good practices and their own personal occurrences and boost morale.
