Loading Shovel Training Northern Ireland

Loading Shovels are common place in quarries, builders yards and many recycling facilities throughout Northern Ireland. Their versatility and large lifting capacities make them a valuable piece of machinery for transportation purposes. It is important that operators are trained to safely operate the Loading Shovel not only to meet legal requirements with regards operator training but also to ensure that accidental damage to the plant and materials is avoided. Loading shovels can be extremely expensive items of machinery and effective operator training is the first line of defence in avoiding machine down time and damages.
