Crane Operators in BC and Yukon are now required to carry 'proof of competence' by Occupational Health & Safety regulations. The Fulford CraneSafe Certificate is recognised by WorkSafeBC and Yukon Worker's Compensation Health and Safety Board as proof of practical competence.
The CraneSafe Certificate is your standard for safe crane operation.
The four levels of certification are:
Level A – Full Scope Operation

Level C – Letter of Permission
Level D – Not Full Scope Operation
To apply for certification you need to complete an application form. If you are applying for Level A certifcation, we will arrange for your assessment. For Levels B and D you will receive instructions to write an online test.
