In dept technical training sessions are periodically organised in Sky Man Europe and USA workshops, for skilled service technicians (electro-mechanical background), operating worldwide with our local distributors and key end users.
All technicians on Sky Man record, are certified to 'competent person' under EN 1808 (and other applicable standards) for overhaul, service, repair and testing of Sky Man hoists and safety brakes. Competent technicians may re-certify hoists and safety brakes for the next period of safe use, generally one year, depending on the conditions of use.
'Operators' under EN 1808 (and other applicable standards), of any TSP, BMU or industry specific SAE (suspended access equipment), must be trained and certified in the safe use and operation. Certificates are generally valid for a period of 2 years.
