Behavior-Based Hoisting Machine (HM) Safety Operations Training

Material Handling Equipment (MHE) ranges from the following machinery:

  • Overhead Crane
  • Rigging, Slinging and Signalling
  • Gantry Crane
  • Crane Lifting Supervisor

Our Behavior-Based Hoisting Machine Safety Operations Training program are meant for operators, inspectors and other personnel who require a thorough knowledge of overhead and gantry cranes, monorail systems and hoists. This program enables companies to perform their own in-house crane inspections and operations, which include the OSHA required Monthly and Periodic Inspections. Training and certification ensure that operators and inspectors meet the OSHA and ASME competency and qualification requirements.
