Industrial headsets for crane crews

Crane Communications

Setcom configures systems specifically tailored for the many industrial and marine crane applications that exist. Whether you operate a gantry, mobile, overhead, railroad, deck, aerial, barge-based, tower, telescopic, or hammerhead crane, proper communications is critical for the safety of the operator and surrounding personnel and property.

OSHA Crane Communications Rules

With the completion of OSHA Final Rule 29 CFR 1926 Subpart CC, crane operators are adapting and rethinking their communications procedures. Subpart CC requires "hands-free communication" for operators if radio communications are being used. In these situations, more sophisticated equipment must be used and this is where Setcom's gear plays a critical role in meeting the new Subpart CC. Devices such as a Setcom foot switch for keying a radio, help meet OSHA's requirements.

While hand signals are permissible, in many situations under OSHA regulations, radio communications can be a much safer and effective form of communications when using a crane. In fact for gantry cranes, OSHA recommends the use of radio communications. An OSHA study found that radio communications while operating a gantry crane increased the productivity of the crane operator.
