All staff, even sub contractors who use your overhead cranes, pillar jib cranes and hoists need to be fully trained and certified and competent in their safe use and operation, including slinging. This is the responsibility of the employer.

The course that AG Cranes offers covers the safe use of cranes, the do’s and don’ts, as well as slinging. This training is important to help prevent accidents and damage, it will also help to ensure that your staff are safe and will also prolong the life of the crane.
