"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn." Benjamin Franklin
This program is designed for participants to gain the necessary skills to be able to direct a moving load that is out of the crane/hoist operator's view as prescribed by the National Standard for Licensing Persons Performing High Risk Work.
On completion of this program participants will be able to communicate and work safely with others in the work area, determine the SWL (safe working load) of gear and materials, select maintain and inspect fibre ropes, chains and steel. Also demonstrate a number of bends and hitches, sling, move and place loads, direct cranes and determine safe ways of supporting different loads.
This program is a pre-requesite for rigging basic but also a platform of knowledge and is highly recommended for all of the tower crane, mobile crane and vehichle loading crane programs that we offer.
