This training is to provide the operators with necessary skills and knowledge while operating an overhead crane. Properly trained operators will reduce unnecessary damage to the equipment, decrease material and product damage and lessen the chance of an incident or injury.
This comprehensive and intensive course has been developed to address all the applicable Laws and regulations (Factories and Machineries Act 1967) and OSHA 94 for operators of overhead lifting equipment. The course covers legislated requirements; pre-operational, operational post-operational and lockout requirements; signals; and required inspections. It also covers planning on how to choose the proper rigging tools for common hitches, estimations of loads and rigging the load as per safe and proper handling requirements for lifting loads.
This course is applicable to all capacities and types of overhead lifting devices.
The course consists of 8 – 12 hours of theory and 4 day of hands on practical, performing the requirements of an operator, signaller and rigger.
The participants are required to successfully complete a written exam, and are evaluated on their practical knowledge and skills to operate an overhead travelling crane safely.
This course is designed to provide Crane Operators with the minimum industry training requirements to ensure safe and efficient operations. The course focuses on providing the foundation for meeting the basic operational and legal requirements and will actively promote healthy and safe practices for handling of cranes and understand methodology of accident prevention.
Over two days, participants are required to attend about 11 hours of classroom instructions and active discussions, 4 hours practical evaluation and take a 1 hour, multiple-choice exam.
