Safety starts with skilled people using good equipment

As part of the crane industry, nearly all of what we do is high risk work. That's why we're proud of our safety record. And our safety record comes from having highly skilled personnel operating well maintained, modern cranes and equipment, all working under the umbrella of a modern, comprehensive safety system.

At REV Cranes we make sure it's a priority that everyone gets to go home safe at the end of the day. And because of that we'll put our work history up as one of the safest in the industry. We don't outsource our risk, having built the expertise in-house.

As a member of the Crane Industry Council of Australia, we comply with CraneSafe and stay abreast of developments in the industry. We keep our machines and lifting equipment in great working order, and our people are some of the best in the business.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the local regulations for crane safety?

In Queensland, local regulations for crane safety require all crane operations to comply with detailed risk assessments and safety plans. Operators should possess appropriate licences and cranes need to undergo regular maintenance and safety checks. Specific regulations also mandate safety measures when operating cranes near overhead power lines and during adverse weather conditions. Get in touch with us for more information.

What are some preventive measures to avoid onsite accidents?

To avoid onsite accidents, it is essential to adopt comprehensive preventive measures. This includes training for all personnel to ensure proper handling and operation of machinery under various conditions. Regular and thorough inspections and maintenance of equipment are crucial to detect and fix any potential faults before they lead to accidents. Additionally, establishing and practising emergency response procedures can prepare teams to effectively handle potential incidents, further enhancing safety on sites.

How often should cranes undergo maintenance and inspection?

Cranes should be inspected daily for operational readiness and more comprehensive checks should be scheduled monthly and annually. These inspections are crucial for identifying potential issues that could lead to mechanical failure or accidents. Detailed records of all inspections, maintenance and repairs should be kept as part of regulatory compliance.

What safety measures should be in place when operating a crane near power lines?

Operating cranes near power lines requires specific safety measures to prevent electrocution risks. These include maintaining a safe distance, which is typically no less than 10 metres from any overhead power lines. Additionally, visual aids to help gauge proximity to power lines and using an observer to guide the crane's movement when in close proximity to power lines are recommended practices.
