This non-examination course serves as an introduction to the basic principals of lifting and rigging so that managers and supervisors have a better understanding of the challenges and issues surrounding safe use of cranes. The course is aimed at process managers, maintenance managers, logistics managers, construction managers, project managers and all supervisors etc who have exposure to and/or responsibility for lifting operations. A key aim is to clarify and outline responsibilities in terms of safety, planning, inspection, day to day operation and record keeping. We can tailor the course to suit bespoke requirements and large or small groups.
