Cranes and Hoists

Cranes and Hoists

UC Davis Office of Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) manages Crane Safety to ensure Cal/OSHA compliance by campus Departments, Field Stations, and Contractors using University-owned overhead cranes, hoists and rigging.

Departments are responsible for providing and documenting training for employees required to operate cranes and hoists.  Only trained and authorized employees may operate departmental cranes and hoists.  Trainees may operate under the close supervision of an experienced and authorized employee.
