NPORS N138 - Telehandler Suspended Loads - Bolt On
To provide thorough theory and practical training on suspending loads from a Telescopic Handler, enabling candidates to competently and safely carry out the role with a view to confidently passing the NPORS Theory and Practical assessments.
Candidates must have passed the CSCS Health and Safety test (within the last 24 months)
Candidates must hold a current Telehandlers operators Card (N010 or N011)
A lift plan is devised by a competent person and available for reference by the operator. When devising the plan, consideration must be taken to ensure that:
There is sufficient clearance between the load and front of the machine to account for load swing which may require (depending on model) the fitment of a jib
Boom extension is sufficient to ensure clearance between the telehandler chassis and load but no more than needed
That the length of the lifting accessories minimises the travel height of the boom whilst not exceeding the included angle of the accessory
Hand lines are specified to allow appropriate external control of the load whilst keeping the slinger/signaller clear of the machine’s travel path
Equipment Required On Site:
Applicable lifting accessories for attaching all suspended loads to the hook
Items to create restrictions for manoeuvring
Structure or below-ground level location for placing a load out-of-sight of the operator
Loads Required On Site:
1 x load at least 50% of the rated capacity of the telehandler
1 x load being a minimum of 3 metres in length
2 x equal-sized loads (width and length) for stacking purposes
To achieve this Bolt on Endorsment the candidates must pass both the NPORS Theory Test and the Practical Test.
