Crane operators are responsible for operating a mobile crane in order to lift, move, position, and reposition different loads of materials. The operator controls different crane functions by pressing buttons, foot pedals, and navigating crane levers.
Crane operators are responsible for lifting and moving materials around a construction site as safely and efficiently as possible. As a crane driver you’d need to be practically-minded, with an understanding of how to drive and maintain heavy machinery.
No specific degree is required for this role. Crane operators gain experience on-site or by completing relevant apprenticeships. They hold a commercial driver’s license and usually a relevant certificate (e.g. NCCCO certification in the US). Accuracy and knowledge of safety regulations and protocols are essential.
Crane operators must also be able to lift heavy loads, climb on lifting equipment safely and stand for long hours. When crafting your own crane operator job description, make sure to mention these skills in the requirements section.
