Be a winner and learn safe heavy lift handling

June 24 - Tomorrow sees the latest two-day seminar on safe heavy transport and lifting by HLPFI safety expert Richard L. Krabbendam and the chance to win a new iPad.

Since his series of lectures and seminars started in 2008, more than 1,000 attendees have joined 44 events in 12 countries.

To celebrate the 1,000th attendee landmark, Krabbendam is raffling a new iPad at the latest two-day event, starting tomorrow, at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Frankfurt, Germany.

Krabbendam said: "Be a winner and learn how to handle heavy lifts safely! There have been some last minute cancellations from the Frankfurt seminar and there are three places left. Do not hesitate to sign-up by sending me an e-mail."

Attendees will enjoy a drinks reception and dinner included in the fee, as well as take away with them a detailed, 390-slide full colour handout, which will become a valuable reference book, Krabbendam says.

He adds: "Training and education is the basis for a safe execution of projects. Avoid costly accidents and project delays and learn from an industry expert with 37 years of experience top tips in handling heavy and voluminous pieces. This is truly a project cargo management course."
