Innovations in Gantry Crane Safety

A 1993 patent application for a gantry crane collision avoidance system used a laser and/or radio transmitter to cut power to some types of motorized gantry cranes in order to prevent collisions, but this system isn't the only way to prevent accidents related to gantry crane operations.There are companies which can be hired to put new gantry crane operators a training program which can include time in a crane simulator. Courses are taught to spot human error within 30 seconds, and to understand safety limitations of gantry crane equipment. Outsourcing your safety training for such equipment may be an excellent investment when it comes to preventing accidents, increased insurance rates, and litigation. Your existing safety devices and procedures will be greatly enhanced by such training.
