Crane and equipment rental company ALL Erection & Crane Rental welcomed the Manitowoc Field School to provide 15 of its qualified erectors training on boom assembly and disassembly.
The training class, held at the ALL Crane headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio, focused on boom assembly and disassembly for Manitowoc crawler crane models 14000 and 16000.
The program combined classroom work covering both models and hands-on experience working on a Manitowoc 16000 in the main ALL yard.
“Assembly and disassembly has become a critical part of our business in order to meet the new OSHA crane regulations,” explained Kirk Ward, corporate safety director at ALL. “We plan to hold more classes in our training centre in Cleveland to accommodate more of our technicians, as this last class was booked up almost immediately.”
The boom crane training forms part of an enterprise-wide commitment to ongoing technical education by ALL, which offers training on technology, repair and maintenance, and the latest safety and regulatory updates.
