SANY India concludes 1st batch of IESC Crane Operators Certification Program
SANY India, a leading manufacturer of construction, heavy machinery and renewable equipment has announced the successful completion of its first batch of IESC Crane Operators Certification Program conducted by the company. The training was supported by Crane Owners Association of India (COAOI).
IESC has certified SANY India as an authorized training partner. SANY India had also facilitated a MoU between IESC and COAOI in December last year for skill development. According to the MOU, COAOI is responsible for providing manpower to the companies that are a part of Infrastructure equipment skill council (IESC). Post the training, IESC will provide certificates approved by the Government of India to the operators that have been trained as per their qualification pack. A group of 15 crane operators, nominated by COAOI went through a rigorous training that included topics such as safe operations and maintenance practices, maintenance schedules, controls and operating systems and in-depth product knowledge.
Speaking at the certification ceremony, Deepak Garg, CEO, SANY South Asia, said, “The most important aspect of this certification program is that of safety and operations. The crane hiring companies are now competing with their global peers, especially, in overseas projects. This certification will highlight global standards as well as increase the capabilities of Indian operators.” “Financing companies and insurance companies too will start asking for such certifications programs in the near future,” he added.
CEO IESC, HS Mohan, said, “I would like to thank SANY, especially Deepak Garg who supported this certification so enthusiastically. I would also like to thank COAOI for the support they have extended. I congratulate the trainees for going through this certification program and we welcome any suggestions for improvement.
Vice President COAOI, Naveen Dedhia, said, “The operators are true owners of the cranes that they operate. While we buy the machines, it is the operator who has the possession of it 24X7. This kind of certification will help operators understand the cranes better in terms of safety and operations.”
