Who Should Take The Crane Supervisor Course?

The SB Skills crane lifting supervisor course is aimed at delegates of all skill levels. We will teach delegates everything from the basics of crane operation through to the analysis of risks and the implementation of a risk aversion strategy. As such, the crane supervisor course is suitable for people of all skills and with any level of experience operating cranes.

Course Objectives

The course is aimed to meet the requirements of the British Standard Code of Practice for the Safe Use of Cranes, BS7121. BS7121 offers guidelines on best practices and a failure to meet the standards means infers that a company or organisation has failed to meet the proper standards in providing a safe place of work.

Students will be able to complete a Method Statement to detail safe systems work and how to select and use the most appropriate crane according to prevailing conditions, the type and properties of the load to be moved, and other factors.
