NPORS N138 - Telehandler Suspended Loads - Bolt On
Duration 2 days
Course Aims

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.

Who Attends

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)

Course Content

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‚Äôs travel path

Equipment Required On Site:

  • Jib/hook attachment

  • Applicable lifting accessories for attaching all suspended loads to the hook

  • Items to create restrictions for manoeuvring

  • Slinger/signaller assistance

  • 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

Assessment
To achieve this Bolt on Endorsment the candidates must pass both the NPORS Theory Test and the Practical Test.
