Who Do We Recommend Attends The Course?
All personnel completing lifting operations with a Tele-handler
A lift plan must be devised by a competent person and available for reference by the operator. When devising the plan, consideration must be taken to ensure that:
there is sufficient clearance between the load and front of the machine to account for load swing which may require (depending on model) the fitment of a jib
boom extension is sufficient to ensure clearance between the telehandler chassis and load but no more than needed
that the length of the lifting accessories minimises the travel height of the boom whilst not exceeding the included angle of the accessory
hand lines are specified to allow appropriate external control of the load whilst keeping the slinger/signaller clear of the machine’s travel path.
