PURPOSE OF THIS COURSE
Operating a lifting machine takes place within a regulatory framework that seeks to ensure safety of the operator, the lifting machine and the lifting machine environment. Telescopic boom handlers are inherently dangerous; hence, their safe operation cannot be overstated. The learner will also acquire the competencies and skills to operate the components, systems and levers to accomplish the task of lifting and handling loads appropriately. The aspects of safety and communication during the lifting operation are covered.

It is important that the learners operate Telescopic boom handlers using the competencies in this Unit Standard and in keeping with the requirements of the National Code of Practice (NCOP) for the Evaluation of Training Providers for Lifting Machine Operators (Government Gazette 27292 – 18 February 2005).

Learners credited with this standard will be capable of:

  • Discussing and applying the regulatory framework for operating Telescopic boom handlers.
  • Describing the telescopic boom handler to be operated.
  • Demonstrating mechanical awareness of the telescopic boom handler.
  • Inspecting the telescopic boom handler.
