Anyone responsible for the thorough examination and inspection of crane ropes is advised to sign up for a special training seminar that will bring them up-to-date with essential new industry requirements.
National lifting gear distributor, Certex UK, has developed the seminar-style training sessions in response to the recent revision of the BS ISO 4309 (including Crane Rope Inspection and Discard Criteria), which was published in August 2010 and now supersedes previous versions of the standard.
Offered at a variety of locations across the UK, the short training sessions will be run by industry expert Ray Allen – Chairman of the International Standards Technical Sub-Committee responsible for writing the revised standard and principal trainer on Certex’s popular Wire Rope Examiner course for over 20 years.
"It is of upmost importance that anyone involved in the thorough examination and daily/weekly/monthly inspections of crane ropes should be fully aware of the revised discard criteria now in place," said Ray Allen.
"The seminar is ideal for those that have previously attended the Certex Wire Rope Examiners course and just need to be brought up to speed with the latest information contained in the revised standard," he added.
The Wire Rope Examiners course itself is designed for those people who are new to the inspection and examination of wire ropes or for those wanting to refresh their skills. This and the update seminar are part of a comprehensive portfolio of courses run by Certex that are directly relevant to today’s industry conditions and requirements.
Attendance on the BS ISO 4309 (Crane Rope Inspection and Discard Criteria) update seminar is just £99 per person.
