Northern Strands Safety Training Division Now Offering Overhead Crane Operator Training!

Northern Strands is pleased to announce that it now offers a Overhead Crane Operator Course for overhead travelling cranes up to 50 tonnes in capacity! 

The overhead crane safety course is based on the Table 16 requirements for a competent operator that are set out in the Appendix of The Occupational Health and Safety Regulations, 1996 here in Saskatchewan.  Learners can now get their full, 40 hour overhead crane course from Northern Strands, which includes a full-day below the hook rigging course as well as hand signal training. 

Overhead travelling crane certification can be achieved in either a 5 or 4 days, depending on how many hours per day the learners want to put in. The 4 day certification requires 10 hour days to make up the total 40 hours of combined practical and theory training.   

Competent operator training for an overhead crane is designed to be as hands-on as possible to let learners get as much time actually operating an overhead crane as they can during the course.
