Does your city or county have a digger derrick mobile crane?
Do your employees currently operate the crane without any training?
Are they running by the seat of their pants?
Have you considered training for those employees but worry about the cost of the training? If so, think about it like this. You can’t NOT afford to train them.
“Someone once told me that they were worried about spending the money to train their employees and they left the company with all that information and formal training. ”
My response to their comment was this
“What if you do not train them and they stay”?????.
Our 3 day mobile crane training will provide them with the training to qualify or certify them as digger derrick mobile crane operators, fixed cab operators, swing cab operators or even crawler crane operators. Investing in training will help you with insurance cost, build employee moral, but most of all ensure that the employee is trained and qualified/competent to operate your heavy equipment. This is required by OSHA to train your employees, ensure they are competent, and qualified or certified to operate the equipment. One step further, OSHA requires you to ensure that the employees are through evaluation of each employee regardless if certified or qualified. Have you evaluated your employees?
Below are pictures of some City Employees that provide you with the water and wastewater services in your city and comments who have been operating cranes or new to the crane world. Here are some of the employees (after the first day) that commented the following:
“I have been doing everything wrong for 20 years.” Never calculated the weight of the load”, “did not really think about all the things I need to know about calculating the gross and net capacity of the crane using the mfg. load chart.”
“I will have a different appreciation for the next crane operator I see, because of what I now know they know.”
“I always thought the crane’s capacity sticker meant I could always pick up that much of weight. Did not know I had to calculate and make a reduction of the crane’s capacity.”
Congratulations to the 8 attendees and look forward to the next class in a few weeks with some hard working, caring city employees.
