The specific aim of this course is to provide delegates with safe techniques for slinging, lifting operations and to act as a Slinger/Banksman.
Although a basic course the content is quite considerable and covers the following areas:
- Current Legislation
- Safety Margins
- Sling Angles and Configurations
- Load Estimation
- Rules for Safe Lifting
- Crane Signals
- Equipment Selection
- Safe Use and Pre-Use Inspection of Lifting Equipment
Each delegate will be expected to complete a Theoretical Examination and Practical Assessment to ensure safe practices are used. A LEEA Approved certificate will be issued on successful completion of course, examination and assessment. These aid in addressing the various legislative requirements that are placed upon employers to ensure their employees are deemed competent.
