The deck of an offshore installation or vessel can be a busy place, and operating cranes in this environment requires clear communication among all personnel. This is why hand signals are the most common means of communication between a crane operator, rigger, and deckhand. Hand signals (when used correctly) can be universally understood, unlike radio systems that can be subject to interference or mechanical issues.

This program provides learners with an in-depth explanation of the hand signals, as defined in the API RP 2D Standard.
