The operation of a gantry crane which is controlled from a location remote to a permanent cabin/control station on the crane (such as pendant control) and that has three or less powered operations does not require a certificate (hoist, raise and lower is one operation).
This is a one day training course in the operation of a pendant (or pendulum) control type bridge crane to be carried out on site and supervised by an experienced Forktalk instructor at all times. Forktalk will provide a booklet as part of the course which contains a list of questions in the back to assist in operator training. Sessions cover safety theory, operator responsibilities, pre-operational and post operational checks, safe operation and shutdown procedures as per the manufacturers’ recommendations. After successful completion of the course, each participant will be issued with a Certificate of Attendance from Forktalk.
