Lift Planning & Management Training

ITI Lift Planning and Management Training is applicable to a wide range of personnel, from health and safety professionals to tradesmen in the field. Under the broader category of Lift Planning & Management, courses are further classified into the following sub-categories:

Lift Planning

ASME P30.1 establishes planning considerations and practices that apply to Load Handling Equipment (LHE), other associated equipment, and activities when moving loads vertically or horizontally. The planning guidance contained in this Standard is divided into two categories dependent upon the nature of the load handling activity and the degree of exposure to the issues that impact safety. These two categories are designated as Standard Lift Plan and Critical Lift Plan. The Standard does not preclude the user of this standard from creating subcategories based on their specific load handling activity considerations.


ITI Lift Planning Curriculum includes options for personnel of all skill and experience levels that are involved or even adjacent to the lift planning process...
