Overhead Gantry Crane

Our course is structured to enable you to comply with the requirements of the WHS/OHS acts in providing training to your employees. This covers the operation of an overhead gantry crane with 3 or less movements. Whilst a High Risk Work Licence is not required to operate these cranes, employers have a duty of care responsibility to provide systems of work and information, instruction and training to their employees who operate them.

A licensed dogger will be required in the use of a bridge or gantry crane where the load is outside the clear view of the crane operator OR when applying slinging techniques for the purposes of lifting a load. Operators of bridge or gantry cranes cannot dog their own load if the situation requires a licensed dogger.
