Welcome to Industrial Crane Training AustraliaIndustrial Crane Training Australia (ICTA) is a division of Hasemer Materials Handing and Redfern Flinn Cranes and Hoisting Equipment which each have over 35 years experience in designing, supplying, supporting and servicing industrial cranes and electric chain hoists in Australia.
Industrial Crane Training offers on-site crane training in the safe use and maintenance of industrial cranes. There are standard training courses, tailored training solutions and refresher crane training programmes available for crane operators, team leaders and maintenance personnel, and the crane training courses are available throughout Australia.
The crane training is targeted at medium and large manufacturers who have significant numbers of employees who need to be trained (or experienced operators who need to have key crane safety messages reinforced) in safely operating industrial cranes and hoisting equipment. Our experience tells us that having employees properly trained in crane safety, usage and crane maintenance is essential to improving productivity and minimising workplace incidents.
Industrial Crane Training's courses focus on the operation, maintenance, inspection and repair of cranes, hoists and winches; and is AS 2550.3-2011 compliant, as well as complying with various State workplace safety regulations.
The training is not designed for mobile crane operators or HRW where a license is required. The training is relevant for operators of overhead, gantry and jib cranes where there are 3 or fewer powered operations, where the crane is pendant controlled and where the load is clearly visible at all times.
The crane training is not manufacturer specific, so is ideal for companies wanting practical on-the-job crane training for their production and operation teams who operate and service common brands of overhead, bridge or jib cranes as well as monorails and fixed point hoists. The objectives of the crane training are to:
- provide operators with an improved understanding of operating industrial cranes and servicing industrial cranes;
- improve operating uptime and overall decision making around industrial crane operation and maintenance; and
- reduce the likelihood of the following occurring when operating industrial cranes:
- lost time injuries;
- "near misses" (eg dropped items with no injury); and
- damage to equipment and parts
The standard operator workshop is 90 minutes duration and consists of practical workshops, small group discussions, role-plays and a quiz.
All materials are supplied. On site crane training is conducted on your premises using your industrial cranes; at a time that is designed to minimise production downtime.
The expected outcomes of crane training include:
- more competent and confident operations and production teams who have a greater working knowledge of crane safety usage and crane maintenance;
- A reduction in lost time through injury and down time, thus improving employee wellbeing and productivity; as well as reducing overall crane maintenance and replacement costs; and
- operators being able to more effectively identify potential hoist and crane failures before a breakdown occurs.
