PPVC Lifting Course for Crane Operators
Code 44084 - Crawler crane
Code 44085 - Truck-mounted mobile crane
Code 44086 - Saddle-jib tower crane
Recently construction sites had started using Prefabricated Prefi nished Volumetric
Construction (PPVC) in building construction to improve productivity. The components
used in PPVC are much heavier and bulky. To lift such components using cranes, the
crane operators need to handle the components (loads) more carefully and position them accurately at specifi ed location points mostly with the help of signalmen’s walkie-talkie communications as the crane operators are unable to see the locations points due to large size of the PPVC components.
At the end of the training, participants would be able to perform lifting operations with
handle heavy and bulky loads such as PPVC units in a safe manner using respective cranes (Crawler/Truck-mounted Mobile/Saddle-jib tower crane)
A. THEORY LESSONS
Brief on DfMA concept; Understanding of load chart for heavy lifting; Understanding of
lifting plan and risk assessment; Special safety considerations during lifting operation for heavy items like PPVC units for crane operators
B. PRACTICAL LESSONS
Practical training sessions involving lifting operations with heavy and bulky loads (PPVC -like units) using respective cranes.
Participants who apply for this course must be a registered crane operator and have working experience in using respective cranes (Crawler/ Truck-mounted Mobile/ Saddle-jib tower Crane)
