HLPFI reviews the shortlisted entries for the 2022 Training Award.
This award will be presented either to a company that has adopted an innovative and successful approach to training staff in day-to-day operations/provided a comprehensive apprenticeship scheme, or a company that has provided a training programme for a particular aspect of the heavy lift and project logistics sector.
Our 2022 shortlist:
Euro Team Capelle
France’s Europe Team Capelle submitted a compelling entry describing the range of training programmes it has established for its teams to maintain high quality technical solutions in the fields of conventional, exceptional and heavy transports. In a bid to tackle the skills shortage facing the sector, Capelle Groupe also established its Oversized Haulage school.
Our judges commended the initiatives, which proved to be comprehensive and well received by its participants.
Logistec Stevedoring’s entry focused on the establishment of its training programme, which has been designed to ensure that all its cargo handling employees are provided with the necessary operations and safety training. Spanning more than 80 facilities, Logistec’s 1,500-plus employees have access to training materials and an online learning platform.
Mammoet made it onto this year’s shortlist with an entry detailing the introduction of a digital platform for SPMT training, helping to ensure operator competence is maintained at consistently high levels. With no recognised licensing system for the operation of SPMTs, Mammoet played a key role in establishing and maintaining equipment usage standards across the industry. The virtual reality (VR) training platform has allowed Mammoet to broaden access to its SPMT training.
Our judges rated the system’s multi-language functionality and attention to detail, which results in a comprehensive training plan.
The winner of this year’s Training Award will be announced at the Heavy Lift Awards 2022 ceremony on September 22 at the Grand Elysee in Hamburg. To join the celebrations, book your space today.
