The annual meeting of the International Crane Stakeholders Assembly (ICSA) March 8, 2017 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, was hosted by the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) and the Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association.

  • ESTA’s European Crane Operator Licence Project
  • CICA’s Operator Competency Program - CrewSafe
  • Cranes on floating barges
  • Report on FEM/ESTA 2017 Wind Summit
  • Stability calculations for long boom systems and wind effects
  • EN 13000
  • New York City safety bills under consideration
  • Methods for calculating wire rope reeving system limits
  • Erecting wind turbines: access roads and hard stands

The next ICSA meeting is scheduled for November 9, 2017, in conjunction with KHL’s World Crane & Transport Summit in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
