From 15.04 to 21.04.2021, the training “Attaching, securing and lifting of loads (crane & forklift truck)” was organized for 05 Mechanical teachers of LILAMA 2 International Technology College (LILAMA 2), conducted by Mr Nguyen Xuan Luong, LILAMA 2’s trainer of Vehicle Engineering Faculty. The training was aimed to help the teachers get familiar with the vehicles usually exploited for lifting operations, typically for metal equipment, machine or wood boxes in the workshops.
Mr Nguyen Tien Dat – a young teacher of Metal Cutting – expressed: “A lifting operation may be performed manually or using lifting equipment. We were instructed on how to work with suspended loads and to reduce risks when working with loads. We have gained better knowledge about the structure of the crane and forklift truck. Now we know how to repair it when problems arise. This process also applies to mechanical lifting equipment, lifting tackle used in rigging a load, lifting attachment points. Therefore, all of us are very excited to participate in this effective training”.
“Although we acknowledge that a person who operates a forklift truck must hold a high-risk work forklift license, we are happy to enhance our knowledge and skill to operate the crane and forklift truck. After this training, we will try our best to practice more and more. In addition, we will spend time to register further training to get official license so that we can operate the forklifts or cranes safely and professionally”, said Mr Nguyen Hai Binh, a Construction Mechanic teacher at LILAMA 2.
This training course was held within the component “Supporting High-Quality TVET Institutes” as part of the Vietnamese-German “Programme Reform of TVET in Viet Nam”. The programme is financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) together with the Vietnamese Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA).
