Hoists are used on many construction sites to vertically transport passengers and materials. Hoist types can vary from a single cage or a twin cage on a rack and pinion mounted on two sides of a hoist tower. They are usually controlled within the cage, and there must be additional safety devices to prevent over-run or free-fall, operator hoist training is essential in passenger safety.
Who should attend?
Hoist training courses for novices and semi-experienced candidates, mainly for operatives and supervisors who are assigned responsibility to operate/supervise building/construction hoists on site.
