Hand Signals

During my training classes I'm always being asked for the most commonly used hand signals for hoisting operations involving cranes, forklifts or any other material handling equipment.

Here is a downloadable PDF for a chart of 19 hand signals that come straight from OSHA's 29 CFR 1926, Subpart CC standards.

Please keep in mind that whenever "Hoisting Operation" activity is being performed a copy of these charts is required to be posted on the equipment or in the vicinity where these operations are being performed.
