Now signalers at your workplace can easily reference the most common hand signals used during the operation of cranes and hoists.

A crane operator should always move loads according to the established code of signals, and use a signaler. Hand signals are the preferred method used, and this poster from CCOHS reinforces the most common used signals, including:

  • Hoist
  • Multiple Trolleys
  • Trolley Travel
  • Stop
  • Emergency Stop
  • Bridge Travel
  • Lower
  • Dog Everything

This poster is printed double-sided, with English on one side and French on the other.
