The purpose of our C0 crane course is to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to safely operate a slewing mobile crane with a capacity of over 100 tonnes in many worksites across Australia
A Slewing mobile crane is defined as a mobile crane incorporating a boom that can be rotated and can be equipped with different lifting gear such as ropes, chains, and sheaves. A slewing crane’s primary use is to raise and lower materials and move them in a horizontal plane. It does not include front end loader, excavator, backhoe or alternative earth moving machinery when configured for the operation of a crane.
The content of this course will provide students with the ability to plan work using a crane with a capacity of over 100 tonnes, perform before and after operational checks, set up a slewing crane for operations including the movement and positioning of the crane, transferring a load safely according to procedures and finally shutting down and securing the crane in a safe manner.
Training will be provided by our highly knowledgeable trainers through written and practical teachings at our onsite training facility in Brisbane. The training material will include the following;
- Potential hazards associated with operating a crane of over 100 tonnes
- Risk assessment using the hierarchy of controls
- WHS legislation, Australian standards, and codes of practice relevant to crane operations
- Routine before and after operational checks and shut down procedures
- Setting up and operating a slewing crane with a capacity of over 100 tonnes
- Lifting gear workload and crane rated capacity calculations
- Maintenance of plant and equipment and isolation procedures
- Characteristics and capabilities of a crane of over 100 tonnes
- Transferring loads
- Communication in the workplace
- Personal protective equipment relevant to crane operations
The successful candidate will have the ability to demonstrate the following activities;
- Comply with WHS legislation, Australian standards, and codes of practice
- Identify hazards included traffic, overhead lines, and environmental conditions
- Apply necessary control measures to avoid potential accidents in the workplace
- Estimate workloads and rated capacity using mathematical calculations
- Set up and safely position a slewing crane taking into consideration ground conditions and other affecting factors
- Conduct routine checks of the crane and isolate faulty plant and equipment according to site procedures
- Operate a slewing crane of over 100 tonnes in various working environments
- Transfer loads using relevant crane movements and lifting gear
- Understand the capabilities and limitations when operating a crane with a capacity of over 100 tonnes.
- Document information relevant to crane operations such as incident reports and maintenance records
- Use effective communication with co-workers in the workplace, especially doggers and riggers and ensure appropriate use of communication equipment such as buzzers, two-way radios, and whistles
On successful completion of this course, you will have the knowledge and practical experience to safely operate a slewing mobile crane, with a capacity of over 100 tonnes, across many different job sites in Australia.
Our highly experienced trainers and assessors will ensure you are confident in your capabilities of operating a slewing crane in various work situations
