In order to carry out the assembly and disassembly of lattice boom elements of our high capacity cranes (> 350t), our crane fitters are required to undergo our "working at height" training. This training was created by the Dufour Group in partnership with training organisation CTD to provide our workers a specialized training, fully adapted to the context of crane installation.
It is mandatory for all crane fitters and for all crane operators working with lattice boom cranes. To ensure effectiveness, the number of participants is limited to 6 people. The training lasts a full day and takes place on our main site in Marquain. It includes both theoretical learning and hands-on practical exercises.
At the end of the training, the participants are assessed on both the theoretical and practical aspects of the training. If the skills are deemed to be acquired, a certificate of achievement is awarded to the worker, which allows the Dufour Group to issue an authorisation to work at height.
