Safe Handling of Winches and Lifting Equipment Course

Course Description: This course has been specifically designed for the fishing industry. We offer a one day course for crew which we named the ‘Operators Course’,  which covers every aspect of safe handling of winches, derricks, cranes, triplex, gantries, stackers, fish pumps, stacking, anchoring, mooring, snap back zones and more. We end the day with a practical visual inspection of this type of equipment. As an extension, a two day course for officers follows, which is called the ‘Supervisors Course’. The Supervisors Course covers the same training as the Operators Course on the first day, but on day two, learners are taught how to incorporate checklists and visual inspections, plus general maintenance on this type of equipment.
