||Mobile cranes are used for increasingly complex and heavy-duty tasks, and their design is constantly evolving with advances in technology. It is therefore necessary to define safety measures and criteria for the maintenance, inspection and use of these cranes, together with the minimum operator qualifications.

Contents: definition of mobile cranes and their component parts; planning of work; reception and erection of cranes on construction sites; work near overhead electric lines; crane stabilization; safety precautions to be adopted during lifting and unloading; crane dismantling; work with buckets or cradles; crane movements while carrying loads; work involving several cranes; balancing of loads.
