What You Can Expect To Learn From Crane Training

Although cranes can be extremely useful when it comes to transporting heavy loads, this doesn’t necessarily mean that they are easy to use and understand. If you attempt to use a crane with limited knowledge, then this could pose serious health and safety risks. Learning the art of operating a crane can be difficult to grasp, and that’s where crane training can come in handy.


If you’re thinking about receiving crane training but you’re not sure what to expect, then this guide is for you.

Legal Requirements

If you are receiving training from a specialist crane company, then you will be shown information regarding the legal requirements of using and maintaining equipment. For instance, the new LOLER legislation means that all companies must now guarantee that their equipment is inspected before using it. In addition to that, you will also learn about safe working loads and the importance of inspection reports. Complying with both legislations such as PUWER (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations) and LOLER (Lifting Operation and Lifting Equipment Regulations) not only looks attractive to your employees, but potential customers too.


Pre-Checks

As aforementioned, cranes can be extremely dangerous if they are not looked after. In order to reduce the likelihood of an accident happening because of a malfunctioning crane, then it’s important to know how to conduct pre-checks. By completing a training course, they will show you how to carry out pre-use checks to identify whether the equipment is safe to use or not. If you use a crane without carrying out the necessary checks and the crane malfunctions, then there could be serious consequences for the safety of your staff and your business in general.


Improving Service Quality

Completing a training course will not only reduce the likelihood of accidents happening, but it will also help you to create a workforce of competent overhead crane operators. If you and your staff know exactly how to use the equipment, then this in turn will increase the lifespan of your equipment. Furthermore, investing in training means that employee knowledge and understanding will develop, improving the quality of their services.
