Since 2008, Redfern Flinn Lifting Equipment has provided crane operator competency training for business customers across Australia seeking to maintain a safe working environment for their employees. Our crane operator competency training assists employers in ensuring their employees who operate their industrial cranes and hoisting equipment are competent and working safely.
If a business has industrial lifting equipment that is remotely controlled by way of a pendant or radio, and the crane does not have any more than 3 powered operations, its crane operators do not need to be licensed. This is the case when no judgement is exercised with respect to the selection of slings, determining the weight of the load or its centre of gravity; or where there is a need to direct the bridge and gantry operator in the movement of the load.
First and foremost, your operators must be competent so they can safely use your company’s lifting equipment. To ensure the utmost safety, crane operator competency training is recommended for all operators.
1) An improved understanding of industrial crane operation in the workplace using Standard Operating Procedures for:
2) Improved operating uptime and overall decision making around the company’s industrial lifting equipment;
3) The ability to identify safe and unsafe work practices;
4) The ability to safely lift and move loads not exceeding WLL, thus reducing the likelihood of the following occurring when industrial lifting equipment is being operated:
Crane operator competency training is designed to help employers train their employees who operate industrial cranes and lifting equipment to perform work in a manner that is safe and without risks to health and safety.
Our 3-hour practical on site crane training is a mix of theory, group discussion and practical demonstration. Our facilitators cover the pre-operational checks required before crane operators can safely operate a crane, and reinforce the need for consistently undertaking safe lifting techniques.
The expected outcomes of our crane hoist and lift operator training are:
Redfern Flinn develops and facilitates crane operator competency training workshops for new industrial crane operators who operate industrial lifting equipment that is remotely controlled by way of a pendant or radio, and where the crane does not have any more than 3 powered operations. Crane operators do not need to be licensed when no judgement is exercised with respect to the selection of slings, determining the weight of the load or its centre of gravity; or where there is a need to direct the bridge and gantry operator in the movement of the load. They must be competent to safely use the lifting equipment on-site.
We also provide workshops that meet refresher training requirements for more experienced operators, where key safety messages and safe lifting techniques are reinforced.
At the conclusion of each crane training workshop, whether it’s overhead crane training, jib crane operator training or gantry crane operator training, every operator participant will demonstrate safe lifting using a standard load and then complete a quiz based on the workshop content covered.
Please note the workshop is not accredited and does not cover any situations that require crane operators to make rigging or dogging decisions.
For more information about crane operator competency training or to book a workshop, please call our Sydney, Melbourne or Newcastle sales teams so we can discuss your specific objectives and workshop requirements.
Once a pre-workshop checklist is completed and the training proposal accepted, we will develop a crane hoist and lift operators training workshop that is specifically designed for your crane operators.
