Overhead Crane and Hoist Operator Safety Training

Overhead (OH) Cranes are hydraulically, electrically or mechanically controlled equipment used lift and move heavy materials from one location to the other in a precise manner.

Overhead Crane Safety Training is designed to lift and move material in an efficient and safe manner and can work up to 2-3 times faster and can be used in extreme environments to reduce workers exposure to hazards associated in material handling by other means.

The in-class theory segment provides knowledge and understanding of safe operations and inspection of the OH Cranes and their components (slings, hooks, cables etc.), and the practical component assesses the skills of the operator to apply their knowledge in the safe operations of the Overhead Cranes and hoisting, thus reducing the risk of harm to people property and business and to increase productivity and efficiency.
