In today’s competitive environment, all commercial and industrial sites have to consider the critical issue of crane signaling as a key factor in the continued productivity of their operations. The Crane Signal Person, in particular, is a major focus for electric utilities, oil refineries, manufacturing plants, paper mills, chemical plants, New commercial Construction, Retro fit HVAC Construction, New and Retro fitted Data Center and Hi purity projects. The United Association (UA) has addressed industry’s needs by developing an intensive course of study that includes classroom and hands-on instruction using the latest equipment and materials. The UA Crane Signal Person Certification Program has been designed to ensure that UA members are able to take on any crane signaling task they may encounter. The high standards of the UA Crane Signal Person Certification Program are uniform throughout the United States and Canada. The United Association working with the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) have established a training and certification program that provides an outstanding tool for determining an individual’s capabilities and competences and ensures their on-going training needs are provided for and validated in a structured environment. The UA Crane Signal Person Certification Program provides an assurance to industry that UA members have the necessary skills not only to do the job right but also to do the job right the first time.
It is our goal at UA LU 421 to provide highly trained UA craftsmen with detailed knowledge and experience that will improve their job performance and contribute to raising our Contractors productivity and ability to procure Projects throughout our jurisdiction of work. Without a doubt, the United Association boasts the foremost training and certification programs available in the industry. For a contractor or plant owner choosing certified signalpersons from UA Local 421 is an assurance that the quality of craftsmanship is the highest you can find in the industry today.

Many workplaces contain spaces that are considered “confined” because their configurations hinder the activities of employees who must enter, work in, and exit them. A confined space has limited or restricted means for entry or exit, and it is not designed for continuous employee occupancy. Confined spaces include, but are not limited to underground vaults, tanks, storage bins, manholes, pits, silos, process vessels, and pipelines. OSHA uses the term “permit-required confined space” (permit space) to describe a confined space that has one or more of the following characteristics: contains or has the potential to contain a hazardous atmosphere; contains a material that has the potential to engulf an entrant; has walls that converge inward or floors that slope downward and taper into a smaller area which could trap or asphyxiate an entrant; or contains any other recognized safety or health hazard, such as unguarded machinery, exposed live wires, or heat stress.
The overall objective of this training is to protect those entering or working around a confined space. In this course you will learn the physical, chemical, and biological principles related to safe working with confined spaces. Objectives of this course are for the student to:
Understand the scope & application of OSHA’s various confined space entry standards
Identify “Confined Spaces”, then determine if they are “Permit Required”
Understand OSHA requirements for developing and maintaining a “permit-required confined space entry program”
Know responsibilities of entrants, attendants, entry supervisors, contractors
Identify when you may utilize OSHA’s “Alternate Entry” and “Reclassification” procedures
Understand the requirements for “Rescue & Emergency Services”
Have a basic knowledge of the general use and limitations of related equipment
