New Crane & Rigging Program Course Structure for 2018!

Tue, 2018-02-13 11:29

The  MHSA Overhead Crane Operator program has a NEW look for 2018!. It consists of  three 1-Day courses that run on consecutive days. Workers can take the number of courses they require for the type of rigging and lifting they do. There is a single Overhead Crane Operator binder that is brought to each course, where content materials are added, and where the worker can add site-specific material to build their own personalized reference book.

  1. The Basic Rigging course is for workers that will be rigging symmetrical loads.
  2. The Overhead Crane Operator – Standard course is for workers that have completed the Basic rigging course and will be lifting symmetrical loads.
  3. The Overhead Crane Operator-Advanced course is for workers that have completed the Standard course and will be rigging and lifting non-symmetrical loads, turning a load over, or making dual crane lifts

Bill 30 takes effect June 1, 2018

Mon, 2018-01-29 13:14

The Government of Alberta’s Bill 30 is an Act to Protect the Health & Well-being of Working Albertans. MHSA is presently reviewing such legislative changes, in an effort to identify what such changes will mean for us, as a Certifying Partner and you, our employer.

Leading up to Bill 30 much discussion and consultation occurred in 2017. The Government of Alberta received input from the public in relation to the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) systems and the Workers Compensation Board (WCB). Information on proposed changes may be found by visiting the following:

Anyone who holds a safety related position should review this information.

MHSA will support our membership to better understand Bill 30.

Please stay tuned for more information.
