We are delighted to announce that our Loadmaster training course has been accredited by @ NOCN group and will be delivered at our training centre @ operator skills hub.”

The course is aimed at site Foreman, Supervisors, Managers, Planners and any other site personnel who are responsible for the safe practice of loading and unloading mobile plant. The award-winning modules upskill candidates on the correct procedures and best practice for the safe loading and unloading of mobile plant and equipment.

Delivered using a blended approach of theory and practical elements, the course is aimed to deliver good practice and perceive potential hazards.

John Moran, Flannery Transport Director commented, “Every year there are approximately 60 -70 overloading events involving plant or equipment coming off the side of HGV’s during the loading/unloading process. By working and collaborating with our customers and clients across the supply chain, we have developed loadmaster to upskill our own workforce and our clients and support their workforce. It sets a standard that was never in existence before. It is a game-changer for the industry and as the rollout continues it helps to reduce near misses and to ensure that everyone gets home safe.”

The Loadmaster Course ensures that everyone involved in plant and equipment movements understands their responsibility and drives better behaviour to help ensure everyone is kept safe. Being able to deliver this course from our brand new, purpose-built facility the Operator Skills Hub in Birmingham is really exciting, and the adoption of a safety-first attitude is vital for the safety and wellbeing of construction and infrastructure workers.
