The importance of training
In response to this, we engaged in discussions and developed the training program 'Working with Lifting Tools.' The training is a shorter version designed for employees who handle loads under a mobile crane using standard lifting equipment (chains and lifting slings) that does not require calculations. This training was developed in collaboration with Mammoet Academy, Laudy Bouw & Ontwikkeling, Ballast Nedam Materieel and our HSE department.

“In lifting activities, an average of 7 fatal accidents and 36 accidents occur in the Netherlands each year, resulting in serious or permanent injuries. With this training we want to offer a more practice-oriented training intended for professionals to provide them with the necessary knowledge and skills so that common simple lifting activities can be carried out safely,” says Geert van der Linde, HSE director.
