Massachusetts Hoisting License Training

Learn from experienced Safety instructors.


We are experienced!

Founded in 2002 by two safety guys looking to help our own crews get certified (and to pay some bills) we have broadened our training curriculum to include many disciplines. The partners (Charlie and Jim) have over 40 years combined experience in the trades and construction safety. We take pride in the quality of our training and will make almost any schedule work. Need a class on the weekend; no problem. Many of our classes run during off hours to accommodate our client’s schedules.  We have several other trainers that work with us, including subject matter experts, safety directors, and risk managers.  Contractor Safety Academy is a resource for you and your company. We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Client Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:

Jim and Charlie at Contractor Safety Academy have been providing Hoisting Operators License Trainings for our employees at Beacon Residential Management in Boston, Ma now for over 3 years. This year they have added the Continuing Education Trainings as well. Their high energy and knowledge in this industry make their trainings a very interesting, well taught and fun educational experience. I would highly recommend their services as they know and understand the Hoisting Operators needs and safety concerns that we need to learn in our very busy industry.

Assistant Vice President-Landscape
Beacon Properties LLC

We were really up against with time and had a big project that was insisting on OSHA 10 certifications. Charlie and his staff put 4 sessions together in a timely fashion that allowed us to continue to operate and trained over 50 drivers. I highly recommend his services.

Wayne Tarr

General Manager
Ready Mix Concrete Division
Benevento Companies

I have used Contractor Safety Academy for several training evolutions from OSHA 10 hour courses to hoisting and rigging training. They delivered a well developed program that educated our work force and showed them how to work more safely in their environment. One employee told me after the course that this was the best training he has had in his 35 years of service working for the company. I would highly recommend using them for any of your safety training needs.
