CICB wants to make sure that at the end of the day everyone safely returns home to their families
Orlando, FL and Houston, TX (PRWEB) September 30, 2014
When construction companies that rely heavily on cranes need their equipment inspected or their operators trained or certified, those firms are increasingly turning to Crane Inspection & Certification Bureau (CICB) in Orlando, Florida and Houston, Texas for their expertise.
“In the construction industry, we mainly assist those companies to get their mobile crane operators nationally certified to meet the most recent OSHA crane law,” explained Director of Sales and Marketing, Billy Cook. Part of the comprehensive training services CICB offers are programs for riggers and signal people, as well as training crane inspectors, aerial work platform operators, forklift operators, and safety awareness for managers and supervisors.
Another important part of CICB’s business is in the inspection of cranes for the construction or general industries. “Our inspectors’ unique knowledge, technical expertise, along with numerous years of experience, make our inspections second to none,” said Camille Singletary, Sales and Marketing Administrator. “Not only are our inspectors nationally certified by NCCCO and backed by third-party liability insurance, but they regularly receive education and updates regarding OSHA and ANSI/ASME laws and regulations.”
“There has been a positive move for most companies to require true third-party inspections for cranes before they are moved onto their work sites”, said Cook. “The idea is to overcome the potential conflict of interest for a crane owner inspecting their own crane, which also means they may be inspecting their own work, as well,” he continued, “and it also eliminates somebody who is inspecting a crane writing a work order to repair that crane himself. So the true third-party inspector, which CICB is, has as its goal the safety of the crane and all the people that work around it. We want to make sure that at the end of the day everyone returns safely home to their families.”
The goal of CICB’s inspections and training programs are to reduce accidents and injuries, increase worker skills, productivity and morale, and achieve regulatory, best practice and corporate compliance, and lower maintenance costs, increase reliability and life of the equipment. CICB, headquartered in Orlando FL since 1969 with a second training facility in Houston TX, offers scheduled training programs at our facilities and at various locations across the U.S. or customized on-site training at your facility. CICB also provides training and inspections internationally.
CICB’s professionally trained instructors and subject matter experts are not only NCCCO Certified as Mobile, Overhead & Articulating Cranes Operators, but are also CCO Certified Riggers, Signalpersons, and Crane Inspectors. All of CICB’s trainers are NCCCO accredited Practical Examiners. CICB’s instructors have been awarded the prestigious Top Trainer Award in 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011 and 2009.
