CICB’s Signalperson Training program is specifically designed to upgrade the existing knowledge and skill levels of basic and trainee signalpersons. Correctly signaling and communicating with crane operators is vital to preventing crane accidents.

Through classroom problems and hands-on exercises, the one-day program teaches all types of approved hand and voice signals as well as basic crane operations so that the students leave with an understanding of the latest standards and regulations found in ASME and OSHA’s General Industry and Construction sections.

OSHA 29CFR 1926 Subpart CC states that a Signalperson needs to know and understand the type of signals used at the worksite; is competent in using these signals; understands the operations and limitations of the equipment, including the crane dynamics involved in swinging, raising, lowering and stopping loads and in boom deflection from hoisting loads, knows and understands the relevant signalperson qualification requirements specified in subpart CC 1926.1419, 1422 and 1428; and passes an oral or written test and a practical test. CICB’s program fulfills all of these requirements.

The Signal Person is considered qualified if he or she:

  • Knows and understand the types of signal used at the worksite.
  •  Is competent in using these signals.
  • Understands the operations and limitations of the equipment including the crane dynamics involved in swinging, raising, lowering and stopping loads and in boom deflection from hoisting loads.
