Congratulations to all the employees who attended the Carry Deck Mobile Crane Training. Many of the students comments as they completed the training were “they did not realized how much you had to know to be a crane operator.”
Mobile Crane Training requires a student to not only know how to push and pull levers but to also do some of the following:
- Inspect the entire crane each day and prior to lifting
- Calculate the load being lifted to know the weights
- Ensure the rigging and hardware that is to be used is inspected and the correct load capacity based on angle, center of gravity and reduction factors
- How to set up the crane properly to ensure clearance from objects and power lines
- Proper signaling
Just a few of the things that are required each and every time your to operate the crane.
Weather is changing in Augusta, GA and it made for a great week and lots of laughter among all the students as they practiced moving a load with water around the obstacles. Learning how to operate the crab steering of the crane to enable the students to get into very tight areas of the mill.
Thanks again to all who participated and received their Mobile Crane Carry Deck Qualification
