Overhead and gantry cranes can increase productivity and growth for your company, but if they are not safely operated, pose serious hazards to your employees. Not only the operators but all personnel in the area where the crane is being operated are at risk and should know how to keep themselves and others safe on the job. This Train-the-Trainer course will provide your experienced operator a solid foundation to start or strengthen your Crane and Hoist Safety Training program at your organization. 

Who Should Attend?

This course is designed for safety managers and other personnel who require a thorough knowledge of crane and hoist safety and those interested in teaching this material to their employees. We strong recommend employees be experienced operators with a strong knowledge of your equipment and procedures.
