Cranes, Derricks, Hoist, Elevators and Conveyors - Coming Soon (SF-008)

The construction and manufacturing industries require specialized equipment, including cranes, derricks, hoists, elevators, and conveyors. These types of equipment are used to move large and heavy loads, providing a critical link between construction design and project management. While each has its specific purpose, each also comes with safety risks and potential hazards.

You'll learn about many essential safety aspects of heavy machinery, including in-depth analysis on the following topics:
• Cranes and Derricks helicopters
• Material hoists
