Tower Crane Rescue Training

In a time sensitive emergency, the combination of varied crane configurations, cab designs, plus uncertain availability of public responders adds up to just one thing:it’s the responsibility of on-scene personnel to save the life of the tower crane worker.

This tower crane rescue course concentrates on the various uses and applications of self-rescue and assisted rescue equipment. The greater portion of the class is held on an elevated structure that pertains specifically to the tower crane industry. After becoming comfortable with the simple processes used with the ARK® and the SRK-11® (ANSI standards) or SRK-15® (CE standards), students will perform and participate in several simulated crane rescue scenarios.

These exercises will include a variety of real-life situations:

  • Accessible victim
  • Remote victim
  • Pick-offs
  • Self-rescue/refuge
  • Other challenging drills

Each student must have appropriate PPE, including a full body harness, dual leg lanyard and any personal fall protection devices normally used. Students should be prepared to climb an actual structure several times each day.

Course Duration: 3 days

Class Size: maximum of 6 students per instructor

The Tower Crane Rescue Training course can take place on your job site or at one of Tech Safety Lines’ training facilities.
