Crane Certification Requirements

NEW Crane Certification Requirements:

The final ruling is in: OSHA has required that all crane operators must be certified by November 10th.

We are ready!

Indigo Signworks’ employees have been trained & certified!

The foundations of the crane operator certification is simple: to ensure a safe job site. This is something we all can agree on, no one wants employees or others to be injured. When our employees are on a job-site with a crane, we have responsibilities. The certification addresses the four main causes of worker accidents: electrocution; being crushed by the equipment; struck by the equipment or a load; and falls.

Training prepares operators to recognize the principal hazards associated with crane use. Certification has been shown to reduce accidents, save lives and reduce injuries.

What we’ve done to prepare:

  • North American Crane Certification conducted in-person training to prepare employees to pass the certification requirements.
  • Indigo Signworks scheduled written and practical exams that the operator must pass to prove they understand and are compliant with OSHA’s requirements.
  • Employees have been trained and certified company wide.

 

What if you work with a sign company whose crane operators are not certified?

  • OSHA fines have increased dramatically. The maximum penalty for a serious violation increased to $12,471. The ceiling for willful and repeat violations also rose to $124,709.
  • Sign companies who have not completed OSHA requirements will lose time waiting for its certification, potentially delaying client installations.
  • Sign companies who have not completed OSHA requirements will have to outsource installation or only use equipment that is exempt.

The Grand Forks Herald highlighted the installation of the new replacement faces for the Fighting Hawk Logo

After a few months of collaborative design and budget meetings, the University of North Dakota contracted Indigo Signworks to update the interlocking logos on both the High Performance Center and the Alerus Center.  Both buildings have the exterior signs upgraded to feature the new Fighting Hawks logo and incorporated LEDs into the cabinets.  Many thanks to all who helped on this project!

Minnesota National Bank Updating their Signage upon their New Branding

Posted on by Indigo Signworks, Inc. in Articles, Customer Spotlight, Featured Jobs Leave a comment

MN National Bank Signage Updates

Minnesota National Bank’s history dates back to 1902 when they were known as the Merchant’s National Bank of Sauk Centre. In 1987, the bank was sold to a group of local owners to become First National Bank. In 2008, they merged with Lake Country State Bank and were renamed Minnesota National Bank, retaining the tradition of being a community bank with expanded offices in Sauk Centre, Long Prairie and Pelican Rapids, Minnesota. MNB is in full-swing updating their signage to match their new branding. MNB, along with HTG Architects, out of Eden Prairie, MN, then made contact with Indigo in early 2015 to discuss fully updating the entire Long Prairie location’s signage needs.

Long Prairie, MN

Minnesota National Bank, Long Prairie began the process of a building renovation, which in turn, evolved into a new branding signage package. (see photos below) During the initial conversation with HTG Architects, we had to discuss the best way to overcome structural obstacles of the existing building to try to implement individual channel letters on an outer wall, as there was no access for wiring behind it. It was decided to move forward with a hinged retro frame LED illuminated cabinet on the building front, and refurbishing the existing cabinet on the back of the building. The pylon sign covered multiple elements of our industry with routed push-thru acrylic letters on the top portion, back to back 15.85mm Daktronics displays, LED illuminated cabinets with rigid dividers and stud mounted PVC address numbers on the base cladding. They were very pleased with the halo effect of the push-thru look night illumination on the top routed aluminum faces.

Pelican Rapids, MN

With the completion of the Long Prairie location, we then approached the image at their Pelican Rapids location. After a number of discussed options, they decided to replicate the Long Prairie pylon for that location. It’s currently in production (see photos below) and hope to see it up before Christmas. With a second electronic message center location, the Daktronics cloud-based control suite was converted from a local access to a shared control for multiple locations. This will allow them to edit and publish presentations already created from branch to branch with the same matrix size message centers.

Sauk Centre, MN

Lastly, their new 3-story building currently under construction for their main branch office in Sauk Centre will have incredible exposure for their new image, located on the entrance corner of the Super Walmart. The pylon will incorporate the same elements as their previously fabricated structures with a few added tenant panels, three large LED illuminated wall cabinets, some directional signage, and two entrance monuments. (see photos below) The completion of this project will tie all the branches together with an updated first-impression and Daktronics software.

It’s truly been a pleasure to work with them as well as HTG Architects on these projects!
