Each year sees dozens of professionals join to meet, learn and make new connections with their peers at Crane Safety seminars: don't miss your chance to be part of our specialist community of engineers.
Why our speakers are looking forward to this year's seminar:
||"I have some experience where APs and TWCs/Design engineers have different opinions on how to assess what matts or working platform is needed for each crane lift activity, which can lead to confrontations onsite or sometimes the wrong solution being implemented because of a misunderstanding. So, by having engineers here we can discuss how to bridge the gap between the two parties and provide a common way forward for all parties."

COVID-19 GUIDANCE FOR ATTENDEES:
We continue to operate all of our events in accordance with the most up to date UK Government advice on Covid-19.
From 24 February 2022 the Government removed the last domestic restrictions associated with Covid-19 in England. People are no longer required to self-isolate even if they test positive for Covid-19. The UK Government has published its plan for living with Covid-19 on the basis that although the virus is still in circulation, a return to pre-pandemic life is now possible. It is therefore down to individuals to assess the risk of returning to ‘normal’ activities such as social mixing and attending events.
However, it is important to us that we continue to protect each other and to support this we request:
- That you do not attend IMechE events if you feel unwell, particularly if you have respiratory or gastrointestinal symptoms
- That you do not attend IMechE events if you have tested positive or suspect that you may have Covid-19
- That you continue to maintain good respiratory and hand hygiene i.e. covering your mouth and nose if you feel the need to cough or sneeze, washing and/or sanitising hands regularly
