HIAB is technically a well-used brand name for a "lorry mounted crane" or "lorry loader".

Specialised Training Services’ HIAB Training Course is approved by the Road Transport Industry Training Body - RTITB - a global organisation set up to develop and apply the highest training standards required to improve safety practices in the use of workplace transport within organisations.

The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1988 (LOLER 989) requires that one person should be appointed to have overall control of each lifting operation and to ensure that it is carried out safely - the “Appointed Person”. This Appointed Person should also be competent and proficient to carry effectively plan and carry out the required lifting task.

Poor planning and poorly-trained HIAB operators are a major cause of industry-related accidents each year, most often resulting in fatalities or serious injury - which can prove costly to your company and damaging in reputation!

We are regulated by RTITB to provide professional HIAB Truck Training with using a range of theoretical and practical activities to ensure that your HIAB operators receive the best possible training which will result in higher efficiency and a safer working environment with zero accident rates.
