CMAA Releases Spanish Edition of Crane Operator’s Manual | Industry News

The Crane Manufacturers Association of America has released a Spanish edition of its Crane Operator’s Manual, Specification No. 79. The guide covers a wide range of topics related to overhead traveling cranes including:

  • Hand signals
  • Lifting and controlling a load
  • Safety and warning devices
  • Inspections
  • Handling the load, do’s and don’ts
  • Terminology
  • Illustrations

“With safety being the No. 1 priority in a manufacturing plant, and Spanish being the second most-spoken language in the United States, it was time for the Crane Operator’s Manual to be offered in a Spanish language edition," says Pete Kerrick, vice-president engineering and service for CMAA.

The 32-page edition is available to order online.
