Course Objectives:

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

Understand the relevant regulations pertaining to lifting operations (e.g. LOLER and PUWER)

Assess loads in terms of their weight and centre of gravity

Understand SWLs and color coding

Carryout pre-use inspections on equipment used in rigging and slinging to ensure safe lifting

Sling loads and ensure they are secure and ready for lifting

Identify the correct hand and radio signals to be used

Apply the correct use of different lifting equipment (e.g. chain blocks, tirfors, slings, shackles and chains)

Recognize the correct packing and stowage of containers, half heights and correct securing methods
