ECOL client promotion to be stepped up

ESTA is planning to step up promotion of its new European Crane Operators’ Licence to the industry’s clients as part of a move to maximise acceptance of the scheme.

ECOL has already received expressions of interest and informal support from companies in the oil and gas, renewable energy and civil engineering sectors and is now hoping to persuade more of the licence’s safety and business advantages.

Meanwhile, ECOL’s awareness continues to grow with the organisation receiving 18 new requests from organisations wanting to find put more about becoming ECOL trainers or examiners.

In addition, the major German organisation GENOSK – the Cooperative for Heavy Transport and Crane Work – has agreed to align its training with the ECOL scheme.
