New report tackles H&S for crane operators

PEMA H&S report PEMA's ‘Crane Operator Health & Safety’ report makes recommendations in a wide range of areas

Port operators could benefit from a new report which includes 20 recommendations for crane manufacturers and terminal operators on how to improve RTG and ship-to-shore (STS) container crane cabin ergonomics and safety.

Published by the Port Equipment Manufacturers Association (PEMA), the Crane Operator Health & Safety report makes recommendations covering a wide range of areas including cabin vibration, maintenance, ambient temperatures, airflow, emissions, integrity of glass floors, fall risks, visual and audio warning systems, inertial forces, and conflicting data sets between control workstations and anthropometric readings.

“This paper and its recommendations provide the industry with a set of best practice advice and points to consider in terms of crane operator safety and well-being,” said PEMA president Ottonel Popesco.

He added: “Similar to the Association’s existing information papers, we hope that this report will be widely used as a trusted source of information in the industry.”
