Types of equipment and their use

Overhead cranes are devices that belong to cranes and are used in many workplaces, including shipbuilding, warehouses, storage facilities, as well as production and industrial halls. Thanks to the various design variants, cranes can be individually adapted to specific jobs. However, they cannot be operated without the relevant authorisations granted by the Technical Inspection Authority.

Variants of cranes at workplaces

Three types of crane are most commonly used in workplaces:

  • Nator or bridge - mainly installed in halls and equipped with load suspension rods that move on platforms. The platform or overhead models are installed under hall ceilings.
  • Suspended - construction similar to nator, but use running tracks suspended from the ceiling structure.
  • Gate - mainly used for external works, constructed from piers placed on the side bridges connecting the gates.

In our Center, we conduct crane trainings that allow you to operate devices of all types. During the course, participants receive a cross-sectional knowledge of specific types of devices. Below we present the types of training we offer. We remind you that they differ in terms of the requirements to start learning.

The authorization to operate overhead cranes is divided into two categories:

  • IS - includes overhead cranes, hoists and winches in category IW, which are controlled from the working level or from the operator's cabin, devices from category II S
  • II S - includes devices controlled from the working level, winches and hoists in category II W and stationary workshop cranes


When it comes to the gantry course, the price in our Center is always encouraging. We set it individually depending on the number of participants, and we are also open to negotiations. As a standard, we invite you to classes at our headquarters in Warsaw and branches located throughout the country - in Katowice, Krakow, Bielsko-Biała. We can also reach you throughout Poland.
