The BC Association for Crane Safety (BCACS) was formed in November of 2005 to provide leadership for health and safety development within the crane hoisting industry. From the beginning, the BCACS has worked closely with industry, labour and government to implement new standards of assessment and certification that make for a safer workplace. We continue to monitor and improve the operator qualification program.
The BCACS also has an important role in promoting the industry to prospective operators and serving as an advisory body on regulatory and safety matters. Ongoing projects will see development of resources that promote safe crane operations for both operators and employers.
