General Steel Crane & Rigging places a large emphasis on employee training and safety. Outside of the basic annual safety training conducted by General Steel Crane & Rigging’s Safety Director, we engage in additional training to ensure the safety of our workforce and our customers.
All General Steel Crane & Rigging employees are required to complete the following:
- ARSC (Association of Reciprocal Safety Councils) safety training
- OSHA 10-hour and MSHA 8-hour training with annual recertification
- MSHA 24-hour, MSHA 8-hour refresher course
Our operators are required to have either the Crane Institute Certification (CIC) or National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators certification (NCCCO). All General Steel employees are also qualified riggers and signal persons.
General Steel Crane & Rigging also has a strict drug testing program and policy in place. All General Steel Crane & Rigging employees undergo a prehire 11-panel drug screen and are tested randomly both within the company and by the Department of Transportation (DOT). We will also follow any of our customers’ drug policies that require additional testing.
