“New Crane, New Operators”

What do you do when you have ordered a new Rough Terrain Crane?

You train your operators to correctly operate your new crane. That is exactly what International Paper did in Savannah, Georgia. Order a new crane and train their operators on how to inspect, setup, and operate the crane.

Congratulations on your new crane and the new crane operators.

Service Truck Operators are Funny!

Week 3 of the Service Truck Mobile Crane Operator training was a little different. We had some real comedians in this class as they had me laughing quite often. Not every class is so funny as the students are trying so hard to learn about being a mobile crane operator. But this week the students definitely have a calling for laughter along with when not looking they would like to play jokes on one another.

While taking pictures, 1 person stands out as the ring leader for fun as the pictures will show. Didn’t notice when taking pictures how a certain individual learned the boom up signal so well, he wanted to show it off in each picture. Good Job expert Signaler!!!

Good job to all the new Mobile Crane Service Truck Operators. Your cards and certificates are in the mail and on the way. I look forward to next week in Raleigh with the 2nd group of service truck operators.

Service Truck Mobile Crane Training

As we entered our second week of Service Truck Mobile Crane Training, new and experienced service technicians joined in the training program for James River Equipment.

These technicians work on many different types of heavy equipment and are very skilled at the rigorous tasks of machinery repair. However, operating the service truck allowed the technicians to showcase their skills of moving smaller items through an obstacle course.

Congratulations to all the attendees in Charlotte, North Carolina for successfully completing the Mobile Crane Service Truck Operator training that is required by OSHA per the 29 CFR 1926.1400 standards.

Happens in a Lumber Mill

What happens in a Lumber Mill doesn’t always stay in a lumber mill.

With the mobile crane Federal laws going into effect for operators, a lumber mill in the state of North Carolina is wasting no time getting all of their employees qualified on the boom truck.

Finished 1 class and another is scheduled for later in the year. Get your employees qualified before it is too late. November 10th 2018 is right around the corner.

Congratulations to Jordan Lumber for qualifying their mobile crane operators!!!
