The Crane Industry Council of Australia (CICA) has recently launched its latest safety training CD, ‘Dogging in the Workplace.’
In a news release, CICA revealed that they have been consulting with industry since last year to develop the new safety training material.
“I am quite excited with the release of this new CD,” said CICA Chief Executive Officer, Alan Marshall. “In late May we launched the new CICA website and a few weeks later we have this new safety product launch, which is another positive achievement for our industry.”
The CD has been developed by CICA Member Stephen Holmes of GTK Training. The CD Roms are designed to be used in-house for individual, self-paced operator training and assessment and are funded by CICA’s CraneSafe program. The ‘Dogging in the Workplace’ CD includes the team work involved, hazards and ways to managing them with focus on Safe Work Method Statements. It comes with an electronic training manual and an assessment section.
Mr Marshall also said they are preparing for the CICA Conference, Exhibition and Crane Display.
“This year the industry show-case event is taking place in Adelaide, 5-7 September, along with the CICA AGM, the Industry Forum, and the 2012 Lift of the Year Awards. In addition, we have the CICA Major Inspection Verification Plate Initiative, the One Association Project and with the new Crane Code of Practice draft now released by Safe Work Australia, so the industry has a lot to talk about,” said Mr Marshall.
“For any assistance or to inquire about membership, contact the CICA Office or your local State Association.”
