Upon completion of the course, people training will learn how to operate particular overhead lifting devices, attachments and related parts efficiently and safely.
The operator course's goal is to first identify and potentially dangerous operator habits which might develop when an individual operates an overhead crane. Costly damage to equipment and products can be prevented with correct practices. Training lessens the chance of a workplace injury or incident happening.
The length of the course is eight hours of classroom instruction followed by a few hours of hands-on, customized, on-site training. Participants would be graded on their knowledge of training material through written testing and an evaluation of their practical knowledge. The minimum acceptable score is 80%.
During the in-class session, participants would know applicable legislation and guidelines, causes of damages and occurrences, internal responsibility, danger awareness, basic equipment and design principles, capacity ratings/load weight calculations, pre-shift equipment checks, safe hoisting/operating methods, equipment applications/rigging, kinds of hardware, pedestrian/operator safety, hitches and angles, turning/flipping loads safely, hand signals for slingers and operators.
The practical training and evaluation portion of the course should be pre-scheduled. This customized part of the training would be held at the trainees' facility. The duration of this practical training part is an hour or two. The instructor will train two operators at a time about skills like for instance planning the lift, correct rigging practices and safe operation.
After finishing both the in-class instruction and the practical training and evaluation, the trainee would be tested via an exam. Every participant would be required to sign the safety rules. Trainees who are successful will be provided with individual wallet certificates. The company will be given a framed wall certificate.
