Training In The Safe Use of Overhead Cranes.
We use a fully certified, independent crane trainer who has many years of experience.
We require the use of a room to run through videos, that demonstrate crane safe use, and good slinging practices.The trainer then carries out a written theory test. This is followed by the candidates taking a practical crane and slinging test, usually in your factory with your overhead crane. Training will be completed within a day.
We like to keep the number of delegates to around 6 people, as a maximum. More can be catered for but it may take 2 days for larger groups.
Crane training is offered on all of our quotations, but amazingly is often only requested after a visit from the Health and Safety inspectorate or a crane related accident ore injury.
Many clients mistakenly assume the installation team will offer training at 5 or 6pm in the evening when they finish testing and commissioning the newly installed gantry crane; and are about to leave for their 2 or 3 hour drive home.
The gantry crane training course includes the following and more:
Health and safety at work
The cost of accidents for employers, employees and their families.
SWL and WLL
Use and inspection of slings, shackles and eye bolts
Crane controls and signals
Practical exercises on your own equipment
