Overhead Crane Training
Overhead Bridge And Gantry Safety Crane Training 29CFR 1910.179(A)(35),(B)(8)ASME B30.2
Overhead bridge and gantry accidents cause downtime and have the potential to injure workers and bystanders. Our Overhead Bridge and Gantry Training Course is designed to minimize the risk of such accidents, the majority of which are caused by human error. The better trained the operator, the less likelihood of an accident occurring. Both operators and the supervisors responsible for the daily operation and safe performance of their equipment can benefit from our specialized Overhead Bridge Course.
Both online and on-location versions of the course are available, and we ensure the most comprehensive classroom training and plenty of practical, hands-on instruction. Practical instruction is arguably the most important part of training programs like ours, and we cut no corners in evaluating each and every operator. The ultimate goal is a safe, efficient workplace environment, and that’s exactly what our training programs deliver.
