Lift Safety Zone at CONEXPO 2014 to Focus on Power Line Hazards
For the second time at CONEXPO, NCCCO is co-sponsoring the Lift Safety Zone (LSZ). Developed in conjunction with the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) and centrally located in Gold Lot #1817, the LSZ will once again profile best practices in crane and rigging activities with live demonstrations throughout the event. Industry experts will be on hand to provide practical safety advice to those who operate, manage, and work with cranes and aerial lifts. NCCCO's mobile crane practical exams and CCO rigger certifications will be prominently featured.
A central theme of CONEXPO's Lift Safety Zone will focus on the hazards of operating cranes and aerial lifts around power lines and the correct and safe way of doing so. The theme also ties in with the presentation to be made as part of CONEXPO's Crane & Rigging education track by Paul Satti of the Construction Safety Council entitled Safety of Equipment around Power Lines on Wednesday, March 5. Excerpts of a new video from the Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association (SC&RA) on the subject of cranes and power line safety will also be shown.
