Overhead Crane Operator Train-the-Trainer
Designed for overhead crane and hoist operators, participants learn safe operating procedures and daily inspection which form a consistent approach to crane safety.
Overhead crane and hoist training provides instruction on safe operating practices, proper load handling, pre-use inspection and accident avoidance. We place emphasis on informing the operator on the interaction of overhead crane components which makes an operator better able to provide early detection of unsafe conditions.
