06 May 2015

The first training session was held at Crosby’s premises in April this year. Dave Nicholls, Arbil Lifting General Manager, had this to say of the event,

“With best and safe practice always being at the forefront of Arbil’s minds we were keen to get on board with The Crosby Group® to roll out this LEEA certified training. Whenever someone purchases lifting equipment, they firstly want to make sure they are purchasing the best and product most fit for purpose, but just as importantly; they also need to ensure that the people using the equipment are trained adequately to be able to use it safely.’ Nicholls continues,

‘This is what makes Crosby’s training ideal – Great products, along with also providing free training, which is even LEEA certified.”

The training courses are led by one of Crosby’s leading training providers: Ashley Hall. Ashley had this to add of the training seminars,

“At Crosby we recognise the importance of training our products end users. There is little purpose to creating arguably the leading range of lifting accessories, only for them to be used ineffectively. The team at Arbil Lifting has welcomed the opportunity to pass this knowledge onto its customer base, with great success around the country.’ Hall continues,

‘Not only does this training give us the opportunity to share our knowledge, but also enables us to get frontline feedback of our products from out in the field, which we then pass on to our product developers, ensuring we always remain as the market leader for product enhancement.”

The training courses cover a multitude of areas and can also be tailored to the attendee’s requirements on request.

Some key areas covered include:
• Risk Management & Basic Rigging
• Rigging Principles and Load Control
• Loads of Rigging and the Rigging Triangle
• Application of Hoist Hooks, Shackles and Links
• Application of Eyebolts, Hoist Rings and Turnbuckles
• Application of Wire Rope Terminations

All attendees to courses are issued with Crosby training certificates along with a LEEA certified certificate. All delegates receive a training workbook along with materials to take away with them, including PPE – all at completely no charge to the delegate.

The next Arbil training day is scheduled to take place on Thursday 16th July 2015 at the Copthorne Hotel Merry Hill, in the West Midlands. Due to the close proximity to Crosby’s facility, a production site tour is also available so users can see first hand the quality of manufacturing processes which go into Crosby’s finished goods.
