Slinging & Lifting Train the Trainer

Designed by Acadame, a specialist provider of bespoke training programmes, this workshop enables participants to carry out their own training for Slinging/lifting and slinging/lifting duties effectively in accordance with the relevant regulations and organisational procedures. This ‘train the trainer’ workshop in Stoke or at your own site, will help your organisation to progress its procedures in line with the evolving landscape of safety regulations.

Thorough training in lifting operations quickly pays for itself in productivity, and reduced damage to your equipment, structures and stock – while safeguarding your people from harm. Our long experience tells us it’s best to work on your own site, using real equipment, cranes and loads.

Training your people in your workplace enables us to include a greater practical element, and tailor the training to the work they’ll be doing every day. It’s not a case of taking abstract theory and trying to apply it to their own situation; it’s all about doing their own job well.
