Operator Training

With today’s demands on middle management and maintaining a safe workplace here at Tag Lifting we want to be able to support you in an easier and more flexible way.


Anthony: Hey you guys, its Anthony here from TagSBM and today I just wanted to talk to you about how a simple training platform more associated to crane lifting and equipment, I’ve got Mark Boyes here today with me and Good Day Mark!

 Mark: Hi Anthony how you doing?

 Anthony: Not too bad Mark thanks not too bad! Listen, Mark I know you’ve been out doing some training yesterday for some new people and I just want you to tell us what’s going on.

 Mark: Its pretty good, we went out there and we trained those three guys and safe operating procedures about on how to use Rig Monorail crane.

 Anthony: Ok, OK. What’s overload was it?

 Mark: The load is different, inconsistent so you probably got a load that a ton and a half up into the higher scale and it’s a monorail scale of full ton, so

 Anthony: Ok

 Mark: It’s different, two different weights, it’s a little bit tricky.

 Anthony: You said, Two different weights isn’t it, what we’re talking is production embalmer or were talking about a little bit more about jabbing, they’re variation

 Mark: more about jabbing, just like flip this dial on one and put another one on it and run the production through for the day and maybe change another for the next day

 Anthony: Ok, ok, and what about the experiences of the distant Operator is it a new crane for them or just a training platform to start with?

 Mark: It’s a brand new crane system, I mean these guys are pretty green and you know no experience as always on piece of equipment.

 Anthony: Ok and how did it feel in the end of the training?

 Mark: We all got a positive feedback from three of the guys, we feel that they really got knowledge for themselves and I’ve given them a lot of encouragement when they are lifting things and so it’s a very good feedback from the guys and they enjoyed it.

 Anthony: Fantastic, fantastic! How long have you been there for?

 Mark: we was there all day and we’ve basically star off with the practical on the white board, a few diagrams and how to lift correctly and chain selections and stuffs and we went back down and did the physical and  practically on the factory floor and did a few lifts

 Anthony: Ok

 Mark: And we made sure they are comfortable before we left

 Anthony: so it looks like it can be randomly a half day training and how many people was that with?

 Mark: That was just with three.

 Anthony: Three

 Mark: and we can do up to the class with five or six

 Anthony: Yeah , so are there any thing there that might  sort of, you know in a way of this class out of 10 what would you think would be the reason to be associated to what is lifting, the way that i had to lift and the many variation that can be consistent or inconsistent in lifting style

 Mark: You know, prior to going out there, i made a Risk Assessment in and around this place, plant and equipment’s, so we already evaluated, what the potential risk in there but certainly in this piece of equipment we hope that there’s a level of 1 to 10,I’d say this can be an 8 or a 9  because these things can and well have in there people, so what about you?

 Anthony: Am i right Mark, in what i have said when i asked you actually gone there earlier as a crane user yourself, you’ve been able to go in, get an understanding of the process that they would be going through because this is a new crane and come away write a training matrix or program  associated to that particular unit and go back a few days later and  call and do the training, is it that right?

 Mark: yeah, pretty much on the ball? we went out there and installed it and I’ve got knowledge of these piece of equipment so at the back of my knowledge i know crane as well as yourself I developed these Risk Assessment and in around that we sat down on the table and i ask all three of the guys if there are any more risk and if there still, they can keep on changing the risk assessment sheet

 Anthony: ok, so how much time involved in the pre trainings set up, so you  had to go out, you have to understand the crane itself , you  have to come away and build a training materials and sort of go back to the actual training program

 Mark: that Is probably a couple of days, you got obviously make a risk assessment do the actual onsite audit so go to the place where these plant is and do a visual audit and you’ll got a good thinking of what you need to put in process or put in place and obviously once the training is pull off, go back the next day of training, evaluate what you got  and deliver the assessment of the elements

 Anthony: my understanding Mark with the Health and Safety platform now is it , we should be having the uses and the people involved as well, have you seen that in the initial set up? These are going on training, you’ve got this as an experienced user the cranes go in fresh and nobody actually involved in it yet and its operation, have you seen that from the team building the platform versus yourself going in understanding it because of your experience and going back, is there any crossover there, you know the way that you might be approaching that?

 Mark: there is it, i mean every individual have a different way or method in using these things but if you can actually be given lets says 5 ,6 or 7 Key Elements that says to check this, check this, check this , they setting up routine or deadly routine about using these things

 Anthony: Fantastic, well Mark is there anything you want to add in this point in time

 Mark: No, no i mean we’ve got other platforms, the training platforms we’ve got not only cranes and monorail but we do with the pieces of plant and equipment’s and also warehouse audit as well, so that’s another thing that we can do

 Anthony: Actually we have said these a few times already, how many years have you been in the industry where by you might be associated with the cranes or plants and equipment’s inside manufacturing and service place companies

 Mark: All my working life, I’ve been involved with overhead cranes, mobile cranes; gantry cranes so pretty much23 years or so

 Anthony: so in the workshop environment different forms of equipment there, you started to talk about forklifts, different types of equipment’s and i started thinking you know understand your trade skills there’s a lot of plants and machinery through the years that you’ve gone by and got that experiences, there’s a lot of that depth knowledge what I’m trying   to say or bring out

 Mark: Not like much like i owe you in the manufacturing industry

 Anthony: Well Mark, thanks very much for that I appreciate your time.

 Mark: Thank you.

 Anthony:   Well that was Mark and obviously there’s a depth of knowledge there and its Mark’s passion as well.

If Mark and TagSBM can help you, drop us a line in here, so sort of Sign Up and we’ll introduce you to a little bit more and let’s see what we can help you with.

Okay, thanks for that. Bye!
