Crane Supervisor (A62)


The Lifting Operations & Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) 1998 state that every lifting operation involving lifting equipment (cranes) must be "appropriately supervised". A trained & competent Crane Supervisor would be nominated by the Appointed Person. 

It is a legal requirement under The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) 1998 that every lifting operation is appropriately supervised.

The Crane Supervisor course is designed to tap-in to your existing knowledge of lifting operations and enhance it, to enable you to direct and supervise a safe lifting operation in accordance with the safe system of work.

The course will also help you identify problems that may have the potential to lead to unsafe situations during a lifting operation.
