Overhead Crane


The Overhead Gantry Crane operator training course will give you the skills to operate the crane safely and efficiently, carry out a pre-use inspection and understand the causes of load stability. 

Candidates will also learn use of slinging equipment and basic slinging techniques.


All course candidates will complete a theory session incorporating elements of Health and Safety, Load Stability, Hazard Identification, Operational Pre-Use Checks, fault reporting and how to estimate/ determine the weight of loads and their centre of gravity.

Candidates will then undertake practical training and assessments to build operator confidence and abilities to ensure the safe operation of overhead gantry cranes in the workplace.
