Completing this training alone does not qualify you to operate a Digger Derrick but it is an important step towards proper operation. However, it is not the only step required. In addition to completing this training:
All operators must be aware of, and comply with, manufacturer’s instructions, applicable OSHA rules, NESC safety guidelines, ANSI standards, and federal, state and local regulations as well as the regulations of your company. ( Note that the Operator’s Manual includes the contact details for obtaining OSHA rules, NESC guidelines, and ANSI standards ).
You must read, understand, and follow the instructions in your Digger Derrick Operator’s manual and other manuals pertaining to your vehicle before operation. The Operator’s Manuals are designed to provide you with the information required for proper operation
Everyone must use safe work practices in a common-sense manner.
Only trained operators, directed by informed and knowledgeable supervision, operate your Digger Derrick.
It is important to be able to recognize safety information. When reading documentation and operating your Digger Derrick, you will encounter warnings and instructions that have a direct impact on safety. These warnings and instructions are accompanied by the safety alert symbol with which you must become familiar. This alert symbol means your safety is involved! Read, Understand, and Follow all danger, warning, and caution decals, and instructions on your Digger Derrick and in your operator’s manual.In addition, the decals on your machine will have the Alert Symbol and a Signal word ( ie. DANGER, WARNING or CAUTION ) to indicate severity of the hazard. Danger indicates an imminently hazardous situation, which, if not avoided, will result in serious injury or death.Warning indicates a potentially hazardous situation, which, if not avoided, could result in serious injury or death.Caution indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, may result in minor or moderate injury.Caution used without safety alert symbol indicates a situation which, if not avoided, may result in property damage. These symbols appear on decals on various surfaces across your Digger Derrick. Ensure that the decals are legible and in good condition. Replace peeling, illegible, and damaged decals immediately. Maintenance of your Digger Derrick is an important step towards safe operation before, during, and after a job. Inspect, maintain, and repair your Digger Derrick and its accessories in accordance with your Maintenance and Operator’s Manuals. Only authorized, qualified personnel with complete knowledge of your Digger Derrick are allowed to perform maintenance. Never search for leaks with your hands or any other part of your body. Never drill holes in the platform and never alter the insulated portion of your Digger Derrick. Page four of the Electrical Hazards lesson explains insulation in more detail. When working from the platform, always use hydraulic tools equipped with orange hoses marked “Non-Conductive”, with proper working pressure rating. Keep hoses clean and dry. If adjustments or repairs have been performed, before operating the vehicle be sure;
all guards and covers have been installed
all safety devices have been reactivated
maintenance equipment has been removed
boom has been cycled
Fuel or oil spills may require notification of appropriate Federal, State, or Local officials. You, the operator, impact safety more than anyone or anything else when operating your Digger Derrick. Study all safety messages. Apply them on the job and always comply with the manufacturers’ instructions, current OSHA rule, NESC safety guidelines, and ANSI standards. Learn to operate your Digger Derrick in a safe manner and use common sense to protect yourself and others from injury or death. Do not start a job, until you are satisfied that it is safe to proceed. Digger Derrick operations can involve dangers that can not be entirely avoided by mechanical means alone. Exercising care and common sense, will prevent accidents, injuries, and death. This lesson presents general safety guidelines, to help prevent common dangers from becoming a serious accident.It is essential that your Digger Derrick is only operated by qualified, competent, and careful operators, who are physically and mentally fit and thoroughly trained in the proper operation. Learn, understand, and practice the proper use of all equipment, before you begin a job. All crew personnel must know the proper procedure to follow in case of an emergency. Make sure that all scheduled maintenance on your Digger Derrick and vehicle has been completed. Never operate your Digger Derrick, if any interlock or safety device is malfunctioning. Never bypass or remove an interlock or safety device. All crew personnel must wear a hard hat, of proper fit and classification, and safety glasses. An OSHA-approved fall protection system is required, if aerial work is to be performed. Proper footwear, gloves, hearing protection and protective clothing may also be required. Personnel must wear suitable insulating gloves and sleeves when working around power lines. Do not allow any un-insulated part of your body to come in contact with pole, load, or equipment. Keep your Digger Derrick control areas free of obstructions that may interfere with the controls or the people who may have to operate them. Only operate Digger Derrick controls while standing on the vehicle; never while standing on the ground, unless operating with Radio Remote controls where the operator does not touch the vehicle and the ground at the same time. Never exceed the rated capacity of your Digger Derrick. It is important to know the total weight of the load to be lifted and to stay within the capacity shown on the load chart. Load charts are located near the controls and communicate valuable information about how much your Digger Derrick can handle given various criteria:
the zone, in which you are working
the boom angle, in degrees
the load radius
the sheave heigh
Load charts also provide valuable information regarding:
the load above which multiple-part lines must be used
rope capacity
elongation limits
Read and follow the load chart information carefully before beginning a job. Replacement ropes must also meet these load chart specifications. The load chart is composed of five boom configurations:
fully retracted
second section extended
third section extended/second section retracted
second / third sections extended
fourth section extended
If your vehicle does not have a fourth section, then that boom configuration area will appear empty. If the load exceeds the winch line capacity, you must multi-part the winch line. Since our example illustrates a Digger Derrick with the second and third sections extended, we will focus on that boom configuration. First, determine your boom angle, by looking at the angle indicator on the side of the boom. The boom angle indicator shows 45 degrees. In the “angle” column locate 45 degrees and follow it across to the “second and third sections extended” boom configuration to determine the load radius and sheave height. In our example, the load radius is 23.4 feet and sheave height is 32.7 feet. A diagram on the load chart illustrates the zones around the truck, from which load capacities are determined. Since the load is positioned in Zone B, we will look under the “Zone B” column to find that our boom capacity is 2,510 pounds.Remember that load charts are custom made for each specific Digger Derrick. The load chart shown may be different than yours. When planning to lift a load, be sure the load chart capacity is sufficient to lift and place the load. You may need to perform a practice run, to ensure the boom movements required do not exceed the load chart capacity.Before leaving the garage:
Visually inspect your vehicle.
Refer to the vehicle manual for proper fluid levels and maintenance specifications, including tire pressure.
Familiarize yourself with your Digger Derrick’s lubrication charts and lubricate as indicated.
With the boom and outriggers fully stored, check the hydraulic oil. Refer to maintenance manual for proper fluids.
Verify the operation of all boom controls.
Check for fluid leak-hydraulic oil is flammable and can create an explosive or conductive mist in the event of a pressurized leak.
Illegible or damaged charts and decals must be replaced. Safety equipment on your vehicle must include D.O.T. flares, triangles and a properly-charged fire extinguisher. Your company policies and local regulations may require additional safety equipment. Become familiar with your company policies and ensure that they are followed. A seat belt is an important component of your vehicle’s safety equipment. Whenever the vehicle is in motion, the driver and passengers must wear their seat belt. Adjust the mirrors and seat for optimum view and fit. Watch your step as you get on and off the truck, when accessing the controls, and when getting in and out of the cab. Be sure of your footing, use the grab handles and steps. Keep steps and truck free of obstacles. If you become aware of a dangerous condition or hear unusual noises such as grinding, cracking, or grating sounds, stop in position and do not move or operate your Digger Derrick until the problem has been diagnosed and resolved. If an electrical storm is approaching or occurring, do not operate your Digger Derrick If you Need a Digger Derrick, Please Visit Our website, We specialize in used, but top quality Digger Derrick Trucks.
