Crane institute of america (cia) has partnered with seminole county public schools (scps) to participate in the epathways initiative.
Epathways is a program that enables high school students workplace learning experience, with participating companies providing internships for eligible students to work in a real adult environment.
Every student intern must work 120 hours total from january 22nd to may 15th to earn 1 high school credit. They’re placed in real workplaces and expected to work as adults would in the same environment, learning valuable social skills for their future careers on top of the experience provided by the job. These are paid positions.
The interns are also given the option to continue working for their chosen company after completing their epathways credit, potentially expanding into a career choice right out of high school. Cia’s intern, bailey cadden, is currently working in our accounting department. She assists with billing to customers, accounts receivable, accounts payable, and any other office administration work that she can assist with.

Accessing high places can be difficult in many work environments. To reach these areas, many workers use scissor lifts. Nearly everyone has seen a scissor lift. They’re common on construction sites, both inside and out, and are often found in warehouses and other large buildings as well.
Scissor lifts in industrial and construction environments introduce employees to scissor lifts, make them aware of the hazards associated with these lifts and give them the information they need to work safely using a scissor lift or working near one.
While there are many different types of cranes, they all have the ability to make many jobs much easier by lifting enormous weight. But they also share the potential for disaster when they are not operated safely. Crane-related accidents can often be deadly, due to the cumbersome and heavy loads that are lifted. Once a load falls, not much can be done to stop it, and there is little time for people to move safely out of the way. Osha has been so concerned about crane safety that they have recently revised their crane safety regulations for the first time in almost 40 years!
Crane safety in construction environments reminds employees that over 90% of crane-related accidents are caused by human error… And explains how they are the key to preventing these incidents.
