Indigo Signs Leads the Way with Trained and Certified Crane Operators

The Importance of Crane Operator Certification

In the realm of construction and industrial operations, safety takes precedence. Indigo Signs understands the importance of a secure job site and the well-being of employees and other individuals present. That is why we have taken proactive measures to ensure that our crane operators are well-trained and certified. Our commitment to safety extends to addressing the four primary causes of worker accidents: electrocution, equipment-related crushes, equipment or load strikes, and falls. Through comprehensive training and certification, we have significantly reduced accidents, saved lives, and minimized injuries.

Rigorous Training and Certification Process

At Indigo Signs, we leave no stone unturned when it comes to preparing our employees. We have partnered with the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO), a trusted authority in the field, to conduct in-person training sessions. These sessions equip our operators with the necessary skills and knowledge to meet the certification requirements.

To ensure compliance with the regulations set forth by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), we have scheduled written and practical exams. These exams test the operators' understanding and proficiency in implementing OSHA's safety guidelines. By successfully passing these exams, our operators demonstrate their competence and dedication to maintaining a safe work environment.

Company-Wide Training and Certification

At Indigo Signs, we believe in fostering a culture of safety throughout our organization. That is why we prioritize training and certifying our employees company-wide. By investing in their professional development and ensuring their certification, we empower our crane operators to operate with confidence and expertise. Imagine partnering with a sign company whose crane operators lack proper certification. The risks and repercussions can be significant, both legally and operationally.

Escalating OSHA Fines for Non-Compliance

In 2018, OSHA implemented stricter penalties for non-compliance with safety regulations. A serious violation can now result in a maximum penalty of $12,471, while willful and repeat violations can lead to fines of up to $124,709. By choosing to work with Indigo Signs, you can rest assured that our certified crane operators adhere to the highest safety standards, mitigating the risk of fines and penalties.

Avoiding Delays and Outsourcing

Sign companies that have not fulfilled the necessary OSHA requirements may face challenges that can disrupt project timelines. To avoid such setbacks, it is crucial to select a sign company like Indigo Signs that has already met the requirements set by OSHA. Additionally, companies without certified crane operators may be compelled to outsource their installation needs or restrict themselves to using exempt equipment. These alternatives can lead to increased costs, reduced control over project execution, and compromised quality.

Trust Indigo Signs for Safety and Compliance

Indigo Signs stands out as an industry leader, prioritizing safety and compliance through the training and certification of our crane operators. By partnering with us, you benefit from a team of professionals who possess the expertise and qualifications necessary to ensure a safe work environment and seamless project execution. Do not take unnecessary risks; choose Indigo Signs for all your signage needs and experience the peace of mind that comes with working with certified crane operators.
