Yoke becomes a LEEA accredited training company

Following an extensive and in-depth audit and review of trainers and training materials, Steven Hong, chairman, announced that the Yoke Training Department had achieved LEEA accredited training status for its “Safe Use and Application Training” of lifting components. “We are delighted to receive this honour from LEEA and it reflects on the great teamwork of our trainers and support team” said Hong. The process entailed an audit of the Yoke training organisation, materials, personal skills/knowledge and facilities to be able to present our Safe Use and Application Training. Richard Oldknow, Yoke consultant said, “The LEEA audit is both fair and challenging, and we appreciate their guidance throughout the whole process, especially thanks to Scott Barnes (LEEA) and the whole LEEA Team, as well as our Yoke colleagues, both at our HQ but also our trainers around the world who worked diligently to achieve this accreditation.”

LEEA accredited training courses are designed specifically for end users of lifting equipment and are delivered on site or as convenient to the students.  The Yoke Safe Use and Application training takes the student through seven separate modules, commencing with regulations, codes and standards, product safe use, pre use checks through to rigging the load and risk assessments/lift planning.  The aim of this course is to refresh learners with existing knowledge of rigging, lifting and slinging techniques but can also benefit recent entrants to the industry who wish to learn new skills

Oldknow said, “The Accredited Training Scheme is proving extremely successful in delivering high quality training for end users of lifting equipment” and we look forward to continuing to take our training around the globe.  Yoke training courses are audited on the materials, trainers and facilities to ensure quality and consistency. We adhere to the highest technical and safety standards during the design and delivery of our courses.  Yoke trainers are appropriately qualified and experienced.
