We have developed a detailed training plan for students who want to conduct slewing crane operations, with a capacity of up to 60 tonnes, in a safe and compliant work environment.
A Slewing mobile crane is defined as a mobile crane that can be rotated, incorporating a boom that can be equipped with various lifting gear such as ropes, chains, and sheaves. A slewing crane’s primary use is to raise and lower loads in a horizontal plane around its axis. It does not include front end loader, excavator, backhoe or alternative earth moving machinery when configured for the operation of a crane.
This course will teach you the importance of planning and preparing a job for slewing crane operations, performing before and after operational checks, setting up a crane according to site procedures, transferring loads and finally the shutdown procedures and safe securing of the crane.
All aspects of this course will be taught by our highly skilled and experienced trainers and assessors through written and practical teachings at our onsite facility in Brisbane. The course content will include the following;
- Hazards, risks, and associated documentation when operating a crane up to 60 tonnes
- WHS legislation, Australian standards, and regulations relevant to crane operations
- Rated capacity and working load limit calculations
- Routine checks, maintenance and isolation procedures
- Ground suitability such as soil types, compaction and ground conditions relevant to setting up a crane
- Capabilities, limitations and operating techniques associated with a 60-tonne crane
- Setting up and operating a crane according to site policies and procedures
- Lifting and transferring loads using appropriate equipment
- Effective communication in the workplace
The successful candidate will have the skills and experience necessary to conduct the following tasks;
- Estimate lifting gear workloads and crane rated capacity through mathematical calculations
- Comply with all relevant safety legislation, standards, and site policies and procedures
- Interpret the suitability of ground conditions when setting up a crane
- Identify potential hazards such as environmental conditions, overhead powerlines, and crane tipping, and apply appropriate measures of control using the hierarchy of controls
- Conduct all operational routine checks including shut down procedures according to site instructions
- Understand the capabilities and limitations when operating a crane with a capacity of 60 tonnes.
- Conduct crane movements in accordance with safe working loads and rated capacities
- Document relevant site information such as incident reports and maintenance records in a compliant manner
- Report any faults related to the crane and associated equipment and isolate according to site procedures
- Use effective verbal and written communication in the workplace and ensure appropriate communication techniques are adhered to such as two-way radios, whistles, and signage
On successful completion of this course, you will have the ability to safely operate a slewing mobile crane, with a capacity of 60 tonnes, across many worksites in Australia.
Our highly experienced trainers and assessors will ensure you are confident in your capabilities of operating a slewing crane using the many techniques displayed throughout your training.
