Recruitment and training in overhead lifting and handling

With a generation of experienced operators and engineers approaching retirement, the overhead lifting and handling industry is facing a pressing need to recruit and train sufficient staff to take their place.

In this webinar, Hoist magazine and a panel of expert speakers will discuss what is being done by industry organisations, training providers and end users to meet this challenge.

As well as providing training to turn ‘jack of all trades’ operators into lifting experts, the industry is also running programmes to make the lifting and handling sector more prominent and more appealing to new recruits.
