Course Description

Introduction

This interactive 5-day training course on Advanced Heavy Lifting & Transportation Techniques for Onshore & Offshore Projects will highlight how the extra-heavy cargo can be safely lifted and transported onshore and offshore. Such sold base of knowledge offers considerable support to engineers and technicians working in onshore and offshore projects. The list of skills that will be gained from this course includes planning, identifying the hazards, assessing the criticality and risks, monitoring, and finally reporting these projects.

The training course will also emphasize the application of best practices advised by the relevant various international standards. Besides, the course surely will have a considerable impact on both; attendants and organizations who decided to select it. 

This GLOMACS training course will feature:

  • Maritime& land architecture and environmental conditions affecting the heavy lifting and transportation projects
  • The best practices advised by international standards for the safety of personnel and equipment when conducting these projects
  • The innovation in techniques and equipment helpful for successive heavy lifting and transportation projects
  • The economics of heavy lifting and transportation projects

Objectives

By the end of this GLOMACS training course on Advanced Heavy Lifting & Transportation Techniques for Onshore & Offshore Projects, participants will be able to:

  • Value the importance of extra heavy lifting and transportation projects
  • Identify the various types of heavy lifting and transportation equipment
  • Advice the application of multiple accessories and attachments used with these projects
  • Participate in preparing plans for such critical projects
  • Conduct the equipment inspections before the execution of these projects
  • Acquire the knowledge related to hazards and risks to such projects
  • React safely in urgent situations
  • Apply the safety regulations advised by the international standards
  • Explain the factors affecting heavy cargo stability during lifting and transportation
