A BC Crane Operator – Limited Scope (Fixed Location) designation (formerly known as a Level D) allows the operator to operate a crane at a specific address on behalf of an employer.
This designation is held in the name of the employer on behalf of an employee and is invalidated if that employee leaves the employ of the employer.
What you need to know
The employer is responsible for all lifts.
Example where this designation may apply:
- A log home builder yard where log homes are constructed.
(The designation would not be valid when assembling or building the log home at the customer’s site. That would be a multi-employer worksite requiring a BC Crane Operator — Full Scope.)
- Document required competency information for the specific crane(s) operated.
- Assign a supervisor to the operator.
- Determine the competence of the operator.
- Be prepared to show evidence of the training the operator has received and what lifts the operator is competent to perform for the specific crane(s) operated.
- Maintain a record of activities/lifts performed.
Evidence of training could include:
- a BC Crane Safety mobile logbook approved and signed off by the employer
- purchased training materials
- confirmation of training by a designated instructor
- Operate only on the worksite trained on and designated by the employer.
- Only perform lifts determined and trained for by the employer.
- Not to serve contractors and other off-site personnel.
- Single employer worksites only.
- Critical lifts are not allowed.
- Non-employees cannot work with or around the crane while it is being operated.
