Exxon, PCL, Koch Industries Joining Crane & Rigging Thought Leaders in Houston

Exxon, PCL, Koch Industries Join Thought Leaders in Houston Next Month

On April 23-24, 2015 the crane, rigging, and load handling industry will descend upon Houston with a fury unbeknownst to mankind. Okay so that was a little bit dramatic, but in all honesty, if you are going to attend one educational event this year, make it this one.

Building on a successful 2014 Workshop, instruction this year will come from David Duerr, PE, President of 2DM Associates, Mike Parnell, Technical Director & CEO of ITI and Joe Kuzar, Assistant Training Manager of ITI. The 2015 event will return to the Hilton Houston North and the crane, rigging, and load handling knowledge will be free flowing. Get ready to join attendees Exxon Mobil, PCL, Koch Industries, and others. To help you process all the possible information about the workshop here are the answers to four most asked questions about the Houston Workshop. 

1. What do I get for attending?

We touched on the crane, rigging, and load handling knowledge and skill building right? If you think of the Workshop as a gourmet meal, then then that is the main course. The resources you walk away from the Workshop with, the ones that you can refer back to for years after the workshop is over, those are the appetizers. Everyone loves appetizers right? This year every attendee will walk out the door with:THGSMCSH

Don’t forget dessert! All attendees receive a certificate of completion as well as 1.6 ITI Continuing Education Units (CEUs).

2. What are the individual workshop sessions?

Each day will be made up of four individual sessions including:

  • Advanced Rigging Foundations
  • Load Spreading
  • Lift Director, Site Supervisor & ASME B30.5
  • ASME P30 LIft Planning Standard
  • Below-the-Hook (BTH) Lifting Devices
  • Lifting APplications & Multi-Crane Lifts
  • Compressor Module Critical LIft Planning
  • Investigation of a Crane Accident

The Workshop is a single track event, so you will not miss out on any of the amazing workshop sessions. 

3. What type of personnel and industries should attend?

If you organization conducts load handling activities at any level you should look into attending the 2015 Houston Workshop. Building knowledge and an organizational culture that values safety and efficiency starts at the top, and the goal of ITI Workshops is to improve lifting operations by educating organizational leaders.
