Hi Friend, 

Crane Assembly & Disassembly Director - What is that?

Over the past decade, we have been introduced to the idea of having "directors" involved in the crane and rigging world. To some extent, we have always had them by virtue of other titles such as lift foreman, hoisting supervisor, crane and rigging superintendent and the like. In the development of new OSHA regulations and ASME standards, we are seeing these roles unfold with more definition and a clearer outline of responsibilities. 

Let's get a broader perspective of the two most recent titles and then we will drill down into the last one to gain a deeper understanding of its tasks and responsibilities. The two under discussion are the "Lift Director" and the "Assembly/Disassembly Director."



OETIM & ITI VR [Case Study]

"It's actually immersive and at a lower cost."

The Operating Engineers Training Institute of Manitoba (OETIM) is a joint Labour/Management non-profit organization with a primary directive of providing training to people in the crane and heavy equipment industries in the Canadian province of Manitoba. OETIM is affiliated with the Construction Sector Council, Apprenticeship Branch of Manitoba, the Canadian Operating Engineers Joint Apprenticeship Training Council (COEJATC), and the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE). 

The Challenge

OETIM's mandate is to deliver "extensive training to any individual interested in pursuing the field of hoisting and heavy equipment operation."  As the current workforce in North America continues the process of turning over, the employment and skills gap must be filled by new, skilled operators. According to OETIM Program Coordinator/Instructor Jordan James, "We did not have enough equipment to support all of our students."
