China-based crane manufacturer XCMG has hosted the National Hoisting Skill Competition as part of a range of offerings to boost crane safety and training in the country.

As China’s hoisting industry continues to grow at an unprecedented rate, more emphasis is being placed on safety and skill levels, said an XCMG spokesman. In 2009, XCMG started the National Hoisting Skill Competition ijn association with six industry associations in 2009. The competition tests theory and practice, project application and skill.

Further developments from the manufacturer have seen XCMG and the construction branch of China's Architecture Association jointly publish the Practical Handbook of Large Equipment Hoisting Engineering. The company has also established 15 training bases for crane operators across the country, including simulators, for heavy lift cranes.
