Operator training is something that many people think isn't necessary, but there is an analogy that might change their minds. You wouldn't give a $100,000 sports car to someone who doesn't have a driver's license and has never driven a car. So, why would you let someone who isn't trained to operate a crane operate one that also costs $100,000? Although crane prices range from hundreds of dollars to millions of dollars, this analogy shows how important operator training really is, and because of that fact it is common sense to have anyone who is going to be using the crane to go through a Cal/OSHA mandatory operator training class given by a Cal/OSHA certified trainer. Trademark Hoist and Crane has multiple certified trainers that can make sure the operators of your new investment won't damage themselves, others, the material they're lifting, your building, or the crane. Don't let incompetence in crane operation cost you $100,000.
