Tundra provides crane rescue and crane safety training services in Ontario


When workers in Ontario are operating a tower crane or working at heights on a construction project, trained rescuers need to be available. This is in line with the Occupational Health and Safety Act, and the Canadian Standards Association code Z248-17.

Tundra Rescue has the ability to support companies using cranes with their crane rescue operations and crane safety training.

Our experience includes crane safety training courses for staff who are required to manage crane rescue operations; the creation and review of crane rescue plans; and advice on crane rescue techniques; standby rescue operations and advice about methodologies and equipment.

We have also run specific rope access operations on cranes on behalf of the cranes owners or subcontractors including crane inspections and aesthetic improvements to cranes including hanging and adjusting promotional or brand banners.
