A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. When it comes to crane operations, rigging can often be that weak link. How a load is attached to a crane can make the difference between a successful lift and an unfortunate accident. And rigging-related accidents can often be deadly, due to the large and heavy loads that are lifted. A small mis-calculation or a brief moment of inattention, and tragedy could strike. 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. A coworker can be injured or killed, and expensive equipment and cargo could be damaged or destroyed, even the crane itself.
- The lifting operations training is for personnel who supervise or are directly involved in rigging and lifting operations, including crane lifting. Practical exercises provide ample opportunity to demonstrate the safe and correct use of equipment.
- This course is aimed to provide candidates with the required knowledge and understanding of relevant legislation and provide them with the skills and techniques use during lifting operations and the correct and safe use of equipment.
