The Importance of Hiab Training Print

The Importance of Hiab Operator Training

For the purpose of this article, the term “Hiab” will be used.  However, Hiab is simply a brand name; the correct term for the equipment is a “lorry mounted crane” or “lorry loader”.

The use of inadequately trained Hiab operators is a major cause of accidents.  Even if such accidents do not cause a fatality or an injury, they will almost certainly lead to costly legal action or damaged equipment.  Therefore, quality Hiab training is a must.  A properly trained operator is also a more profitable one, providing higher levels of efficiency and less down time, as well as a safer working environment.  ALLMI instructors can supply the rigorous and all-inclusive Hiab crane training necessary to achieve these benefits.

Quality of ALLMI Instructors

ALLMI has over 150 accredited instructors throughout the UK and Ireland.  All Hiab training instructors hold recognised operator, slinger / signaller and instructional techniques qualifications, and have extensive experience with the equipment.  In addition, instructors must successfully complete the ALLMI Instructor Course and all are audited annually in order to ensure that a high standard is maintained across the ALLMI training provider network.

Course Content

The ALLMI operator course content includes the following modules: 

  • Legislation
  • Introduction to the Loader Crane
  • Pre–operational Checks
  • Operator Maintenance

ALLMI provides novice (two day duration), experienced (one day) and conversion courses for operators, which include theoretical and practical instruction and assessment relevant to the category of machine being trained on.

Every successful operator receives a certificate and identity card, as well as the ALLMI Operator Manual.  ALLMI certification is valid for five years, after which time refresher training and assessment will need to be undertaken.
