1 Day HIAB Training Course

Lorry-mounted cranes are often referred to as HIAB’s. “HIAB” is a proprietary name of a Lorry Loader manufacturer and is a generically accepted term for a lorry loader. Lifting operations can often put people at great risk of injury, as well as incurring great costs when they go wrong. It is therefore important to properly resource, plan and organise lifting operations so they are carried out in a safe manner. Each of these elements requires a person or people with sufficient competence to be involved at each step. These people should have sufficient theoretical and practical knowledge of the work and equipment in question, as well as the requirements of the law, to be able to do this properly. Our RTITB course covers all aspects of Hiab operation and teaches the skills required to operate a Hiab safely and effectively.
