Overhead Gantry Crane Training North Wales

Overhead gantry cranes, also known as bridge cranes or overhead cranes, are widely used in North Wales across various industries for material handling, loading, and unloading tasks. They are commonly found in facilities like factories, warehouses, shipyards, ports, and construction sites.

By investing in accredited overhead gantry crane training for your North Wales based business, you can ensure the safety of your employees, equipment, and work environment while gaining a more productive workforce.

The Importance of RTITB Accredited Overhead Gantry Crane Training in North Wales

Overhead gantry crane training isn’t just a box-ticking exercise; it delivers tangible benefits that enhance your business operations in North Wales. Here’s why investing in this training should be on your agenda:

  • Regulatory Compliance: In the UK, businesses are mandated to comply with health and safety regulations, like the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) and the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER). Overhead gantry crane training helps meet these legal obligations, ensuring that your staff operates the equipment safely and effectively.
  • Workplace Safety: TL Training courses follow stringent safety standards. We cover both theoretical knowledge and practical handling techniques, significantly reducing the risk of accidents and injuries in the workplace.
  • Increased Productivity: Skilled crane operators are more efficient, reducing material handling times and boosting overall productivity.
  • Reduced Equipment Damage: Well-trained operators are less likely to cause damage to the crane or the materials being handled, which can minimise accidents, lower repair costs, and prolong the service life of your equipment.

What Does Overhead Gantry Crane Training Cover?

Our overhead gantry crane training course, often called OC training, is designed to empower your staff with comprehensive knowledge and practical skills in crane operation.

Throughout the course, attendees will be acquainted with various control systems, including pendant control and remote control, allowing them to operate the crane efficiently from any location.

Key areas covered in the course include:

  • Mastering Crane Controls: We introduce attendees to the different control systems, enabling them to manoeuvre the crane in all four directions.
  • Handling Hook Swing: Trainees learn how to control the hook swing effectively, a crucial skill for safe crane operation.
  • Pre-use Inspection: Attendees are taught how to conduct a thorough pre-use inspection, ensuring the crane is safe and ready for operation.
  • Understanding Signalling Protocols: We cover basic signalling protocols, fostering effective communication between crane operators and ground personnel.
  • Grasping Slinging Techniques: Basic slinging techniques are taught, allowing operators to handle loads safely and efficiently.

We offer two versions of the course: A ‘Novice’ version for those new to crane operation and a ‘Refresher’ version for experienced operators needing to update their skills. Both course types can cater up to three delegates, ensuring personalised attention and more effective learning.
