What happens when me as a beginner start training on our STS-Cranes?

Lately I have been training on our STS-Cranes with Svein Ervik and Trine Therese Berntsen. Svein has 16 years of experience and Trine has been operating for 5 years. And then there is me! With just a few ours of operating time ๐Ÿ˜€

Graciously taking over the shift. Svein Ervik on the left and Rudi Romsaas.

For me this is big to finally be training on our ‘big’ cranes. Just this week I have had more training than for the last whole year! ๐Ÿ˜€

I am grateful for the time that is given to me in the cranes. It comes with a huge responsibility to operate these types of cranes. I appreciate the trust that I am given.

Mr. Ervik is showing me how to get the spreader in a special position for special cargo.

To answer the question on how the day went? Well. It went good. Off course. It doesn’t go fast. But you gotta start somewhere. The most important thing is that the driving is safe and sound. No need to rush and over extend your capabilities. That can lead to disaster.

Thank you for reading. This will most definitely be a ‘to be continued’ topic.
