Crane & Hoist Canada magazine is getting set to host its first ever event in April and is excited to announce CraneSafe 2020 will be co-located in the Workplace Safety & Prevention Services’ annual Partners in Prevention Health & Safety Conference & Trade Show (PIP).

PIP is Canada’s largest safety conference and attracts more than 4,000 attendees. CraneSafe 2020 takes place on April 28, but the exhibition portion runs April 28 to 29. CraneSafe 2020 attendees are entitled to a discount to attend the second day of sessions at Partners in Prevention.

“The trade show brings together over 400 vendors offering the latest products, services and innovations in health and safety. Complemented with fun and engaging activities, live demonstrations, activities and social networking – there is so much to see and do,” PIP states on their event website.

Crane & Hoist’s media partners at OHS Canada and SP&T News are presenting the event as an exclusive day-long forum focused on crane and heavy lifting safety.

Construction sites are dangerous and the presence of cranes and hoists only adds to the risks. Physical safety of workers is just one priority: Advances in technology have exposed equipment to malicious hacking and thrill-seeking selfie takers have made headlines by breaking into sites and climbing to dangerous heights. Along the same lines, crane operators and construction site workers are seen snapping a photo or a selfie during their shift and while running equipment. Is it worth the risk?

Who should attend?

Heavy lifting, crane and hoist operations managers and owners; researchers; software developers; crane operators; fleet managers; engineers. If you are in the heavy lifting industry this event is for you.

Why attend?

The forum will offer presentations such as:

• Thrill seekers at construction sites
• Workers taking selfies and following unsafe practices for a good social media post
• Keeping your data, equipment and machinery safe through cyber security
• Keeping your site safe for you and your workers
• Major crane safety hazards and preventative measures
