Crane Institute of America announced the release of a brand new handbook, Overhead Cranes. Colour graphics clearly illustrate information about bridge cranes, gantry cranes, monorail systems, and underhung hoists. The handbook focuses on training requirements, pre-shift inspection, operation, hoisting personnel, and more. “This handbook is a must-have for anyone working with overhead cranes,” said Jim Headley, President, CIA and author of the handbook. “It is an excellent resource as a safety reference or to use as a training aid.” Crane Institute of America has more than half a million books in print. Handbooks and other materials are available in the online store at craneinstitute.com.Crane Institute of America, LLC has trained, qualified and/or certified over 100,000 equipment operators, inspectors, supervisors, trainers and riggers since 1987.
