Aertssen Jobdag 16 juni 2018-1

a day in the life of a crane operator

Hoisting heavy or large objects is often a precise and intellectual job. You must prepare the lifting equipment properly, make no mistakes and carefully and thoughtfully operate the cranes to carry out the heavy job. Curious to see what the working day of our crane operator looks like?



Are you joining our team?

During our job day on May11 you can do much more than just watch. Learn how to use drones, test our work in 3D with VR and a crane simulator or immediately operate our mighty machines. Lifting with our cranes, driving with our dumpers and maneuvering with our trucks: it's all possible!
