Crane and Tower Operator Career
Crane and tower operators use machinery to move materials around a building site while construction is occurring or in helping to unload large pieces of steel or other materials from cargo ships or trains.
If you choose to be a crane and tower operator, you may be responsible for setting up, inspecting and repairing your equipment as well as carefully controlling large, expensive pieces of equipment with levers, wheels and foot pedals. You will need to move materials around according to a schedule and keep track of when and where you move materials so others can locate and use them. It would be very important to follow safety instructions and operating procedures for the equipment.
