Jim Kingerski, executive vice president, marketing and sales, Cattron, said: "We are pleased to participate in the ICHC forum, initially in Chicago. It is these kind of conferences that enable Cattron to hear the voice of the customer regarding new product features, as well as safety considerations. At Cattron, safety is always our first concern as well as our continued emphasis on productivity and efficiency. We are excited to promote our new Cattron control lines as well as our new Cattron Connect product for industrial applications."
ILH associate publisher and editor, Richard Howes, said: "I am delighted to welcome Cattron as associate sponsors. Their participation is a huge endorsement of the product and I look forward to working with them before, during and after our Chicago conference as we promote the sharing of information for continued improvement of industry best practices."
Register today to attend ICHC—the biggest overhead crane and hoist users' forum North America has ever seen. Get the latest on the economy, standards, safety and productivity. Other highlights include:
- OSHA standards panel
- Rigging masterclass
- View from an economist
- Case studies
- CMAA and ANSI/ASME B30 in practice
Overhead crane and hoist users have been advised to be prepared to change the way they operate overhead lifting equipment. An ICHC panel will discuss regulations and training as they relate to overhead crane operators; rigging below-the-hook; and signalpersons. The panel will dissect the revision of federal OSHA mobile crane regulations, and chart where certification and training stands with overhead crane owners and users.
ICHC takes place above the largest show floor of lifting and moving technology you will see anywhere in North America next year. End users cannot afford to miss the valuable lessons that will be served up during a value-packed, one-day program. The event is structured to promote the sharing of knowledge among industry peers.
