Heede Southwest hosts tower crane workshop

18 March 2008

Heede Southeast recently hosted a dedicated tower crane workshop for operators to earn its practical examiners accreditation.

Doud Sigliner was the instructor for the course that covered all aspects of safe tower crane operation. For the instruction and testing, Heede set up a 5111 Comansa set up at its facility in Pineville, NC.

“We had a very good turn out and we stand behind the CCO program 100 percent,” said Mike Hundley. “We had all of our crane operators take their written exams. We here at Heede think that this is one of the best things that could happen in our business.”

Hundley, safety director for Heede and a CCO practical examiner, invited all tower crane operators to take their practical exam to do so at the Heede facility. “Just call us to set up a time and a date,” he said.
