Crane Safety 2019 will bring together decision makers across industries to discuss the dynamic solutions available. Hear insights from leading construction companies about recent projects and practical guidance from the industry regulator.
This is a unique opportunity to learn industry best practice and how your organisation can address the challenges of risk and incident reduction, cost savings vs maintenance and compliance with safety legislation. Hear and develop effective strategies to make your lifting operations as safe, timely and cost-efficient as possible.
Why should engineers attend Crane Safety 2019?
"As lifting projects continue to become more complex, crane owners and operators must understand how to maintain high levels of safety and compliance with industry regulations.”
Tim Watson, Technical Consultant, Construction Plant-hire Association.
"It is so easy for us to be insular and not take good practice from other areas, here we have a great opportunity to see and hear best practice from Nuclear, Construction, Offshore, manufacturing and Health and Safety executive point of view, a rare opportunity not to be missed!"
Steve Bradby, Engineering Leader, Select Plant Hire and Event Chair, Crane Safety 2019
"Why is it important for engineers to join Crane Safety 2019? Because we are Engineers and we are always expected to know better."
Mike Ponsonby, Managing Director, Mike J Ponsonby Ltd
"A number of reason spring to mind including the opportunity to listen to lifting professionals from different sectors, understanding what others are working on for the future and networking with like minded people."
Edward Carr, Lifting Solutions Business Stream Leader, Select Plant Hire
"Engineers solve problems. By increasing their awareness of the challenges facing the industry and solutions that are being developed we can all help to ensure people involved in lifting go home safely at the end of their working day."
David Gostick, HM Specialist Inspector (Mechanical Engineering), HSE
“Lifting Operations are inherently dangerous due to having to defeat gravity with every single lift. So on Monday 7th May 2007 Technical Consultant Mike Ponsonby started to Research and Record all Crane and Lifting Incidents worldwide with 619 Incidents to date, causing 548 Fatalities. Appointed Person Mike Ponsonby now uses his Technical knowledge and Experience to all Train Directors, Managers and Employees in all of the Common Law and Legislative Duties involved and the Safe Systems of Work (SSoW) required to minimise the Hazards involved in Lifting Operations. Mike Ponsonby's personal objective being to stop Men and Women from getting Killed at Work, as 548 Fatal Incidents is 548 too many."
