All Crane's crane operator certification

20 March 2008

All Crane Training USA hosted a NCCCO Overhead Crane Practical Examiner Workshop towards the end of March at its headquarters in Oakland, CA. The event was attended by examiner applicants from across the US.

All Crane Training has been providing mobile and tower crane training programs, as well as NCCCO written and practical examinations, since 2002. Company president Don “Doc” Bailey said he expects an increasing number of firms will seek overhead crane training and CCO overhead crane operator certification as they begin to appreciate the dividends that accrue from professional training and assessment. “We can all work together to save lives and lower accidents,” Bailey said. “CCO certification just makes good financial sense.”

All Crane Training USA is a full-scale training facility that offers classroom and practical training, as well as CCO certification, all in one location near the Oakland Airport. With more than 20 years industry experience, Bailey provides instruction utilizing his own training manual, with a down-to-earth instruction style that has gained him a reputation for creating a stimulating learning environment for crane operators. Bailey is certified in all CCO certification categories: mobile, tower and overhead crane operator. He is also an accredited practical examiner for all NCCCO crane programs. “I've realized the importance of offering overhead crane training and CCO overhead crane operator certification,” said Bailey. “That's why I wanted our company to host an NCCCO Overhead Crane Workshop.”

He believes the industry is beginning to recognize the risks associated with overhead crane operations. Bailey quotes a National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) report that stated 136 workers died in the US between 1992 and 2004 due to accidents associated with overhead cranes. “Not only is this number likely highly conservative, but it ignores the equally significant lost time accidents and long term disabilities that go widely unreported,” Bailey said.
