By demonstrating your skills and experience, you will definitely impress your boss and he will assign you to more complex and responsible projects.

I keep repeating my self by saying that one way to achieve these goals is by Education and Training. 

Unfortunately we still come across to many crane and transport incidents which could have been prevented had the operators and planners taken care of the basic Laws of Nature and prepared their project properly.  See examples on my website: http://www.heavyliftnews.com/accidents .

It is the Management’s responsibility to provide  a “Safe Working environment for the workers”  and make sure projects are executed in a “Safe Way”.
