Crane & Lifting Equipment Training

According to LOLER, PUWER and British Standards, which are all backed by the HSE, the operative tasked with operating a crane should receive adequate training and be considered a competent user. Statistics show that crane operator training assists in the prevention of accidents to personnel and plant as well as improving the operating life of cranes and lifting gear that can be affected by misuse.

Crane Training at ABUS Training Centre

ABUS crane operator training courses at our own Training Centre in Yateley can be individually tailored to suit your particular needs. Using this method, operators gain first-hand experience on the equipment to be used on a daily basis with particular attention to safe slinging and movement of actual loads that would be encountered every day. The typical content of a training course covers:

  • Safe start-up of crane.
  • Safe shut down of crane.
  • Getting to know your crane.
  • General instruction regarding safe slinging.
  • General instruction regarding ancillary lifting attachments.
  • General instruction regarding emergency procedures.

The training takes one day, with half day theory and half day practical with test. On successful completion of the training course a certificate and photo-card is presented to each trainee.
