Overhead Alliance New Virtual Reality Crane Game for Oculus Rift
Our new Virtual Reality Crane game is a fun and educational experience that shows what it is like to operate an overhead crane. The game uses cutting edge technology that brings you inside of a realistic manufacturing shop floor. It gives its users a 360 real life perspective inside of the headset.
The game is a combined effort of CMAA, HMI and MMA member companies in conjunction with Vern Shurtz and John Berryman from the Stratus Technology Group.
The combined effort from OSHA, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, and CPWR–The Center for Construction Research and Training is known as the National Safety Stand-Down. Last year marked the fourth annual Stand-Down with nearly 150 free public events reaching more than 1 million workers. By continuing to reach workers and employers, OSHA aims to raise awareness and decrease the number of fall-related injuries and fatalities and injuries. Participation is not limited to the construction industry, and no business is too small to participate. In previous years, many non-construction employers held Stand-Downs.
Each year OSHA partners with employers, trade associations and institutes, unions, worker interest organizations, safety managers, construction material suppliers, and other government agencies to encourage participation throughout many industries. As the economy continues to grow and the full construction seas on begins, we hope the Stand-Down will remind employers and workers that fall prevention is an important part of every workplace safety plan. Employers and workers are encouraged to pause in their workday to talk about fall prevention and dedicate themselves yet again to the safety of this nation’s most valuable resource: workers. For more information on the Stand-Down, visit www.osha.gov/StopFallsStandDown.
If you want to share information with OSHA on your Safety Stand-Down, Fall Prevention Programs or suggestions on how we can improve future initiatives like this, please send your email to oshastanddown[at]dol[dot]gov. Also share your Stand-Down story on social media, with the hashtag: #StandDown4Safety and #LiftSafe (this is a special CHM Alliance hashtag).
If you plan to host a free event that is open to the public, see OSHA's Events page to submit the event details and to contact your Regional Stand-Down Coordinator.
When choosing a lifting and moving solution for your facility, consider an overhead hoist, crane or monorail. Overhead lifting solutions improve efficiency, productivity and safety and reduces environmental impact. New technology has made overhead lifting solutions easier and more productive to use than ever before. Advancements include enhanced precision controls and longer lasting equipment.
|Safe + Sound Week|
A nationwide event to raise awareness and understanding of the value of safety and health programs that include management leadership, worker participation, and a systematic approach to finding and fixing hazards in workplaces.
|OSHA's Fall Prevention Campaign|
Since 2012, OSHA has partnered with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA) - Construction Sector on the Fall Prevention Campaign to raise awareness among workers and employers about common fall hazards in construction, and how falls from ladders, scaffolds and roofs can be prevented.

The Overhead Alliance has provided lecture material to increase awareness of the overhead material handling industry and related products. Overhead lifting solutions provide opportunities to improve efficiency, increase productivity, enhance safety, and reduce environmental impact. New technology has made overhead lifting solutions easier and more productive to use than ever before.
The material was developed in cooperation with the College Industry Council on Material Handling Education (CICMHE) to promote overhead lifting technologies through lecture materials that can be incorporated in academic coursework. The lecture material is available in PowerPoint or PDF format
Lecture Material 101
Introduction to Overhead Material Handling Equipment reviewing types, benefits and case studies.
Lecture Material 102
Basic Material Handling Equipment (MHE) overview, benefits and case studies.
