To start this month’s column, I would like to talk about the last Council meeting the Crane Association held on May 27.
One of the items discussed was the minimum qualification for overhead gantry operators, which a position paper has since been produced and is available for members on our website.
It is pleasing that this will provide you, our members, with the certainty about the minimum requirements, while removing any ambiguities that might have existed previously.
An opinion based on the available evidence, this paper takes a lead in an area of our industry where other parties could have pre-empted the Association’s views.
This also adds to the list of other position papers devised by the Association, which is a valuable reference material for industry players as well as entities like WorkSafe. So, if you haven’t already viewed theses papers, I encourage you all to – click here.
