Safe Operation of Hoists – On-site
This course will provide participants with a thorough review of the information about hoists, capacity principles, load stability principles, and safe operating procedures. In order to receive a certificate of competence, a passing grade must be obtained on a written test in class and a practical skills evaluation performed at the worker’s place of employment.
By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Discuss applicable legislation

Upon completion of the theory portion of the program a hands-on practical evaluation is required to complete certification. Our theory course is set to run approximately 8 hours. Times may vary as a result of the different styles of equipment, and numbers of participants. If the theory portion of the course is completed early, the instructor will complete as many evaluations as possible within the allotted time frame.
A $75/person charge applies for each evaluation. If additional evaluations are required for different types of lifting devices, then a charge of $25/person/lifting device will apply. Additional charges will apply if lifting device evaluations are required outside the 519, 548 and 226; 416, 437 and 647; and 289, 365 and 905 area codes. OSG recommends that practical evaluations be completed within 90 days of completing the theory portion of the program.
In order for evaluations to be completed, the following conditions must be met:
- Lifting device scheduling confirmation received in advance
- Participant has a minimum of 8 hours practical experience on each piece of equipment he/she will be operating
- Equipment is in good working order and annual equipment certification is completed
