Safety Training

Our Training Department provides the latest up-to-date information needed to perform all phases of material handling in a safe, professional manner. Providing local and on-site training, CMS will tailor to your specific needs.

CMS is a leader in the development and presentation of crane and rigging programs since 1955. Our experienced staff can help you reach your goal of providing a safe and productive material handling environment.

Creating a Proactive Environment

An accident is the most obvious sign of a lift gone wrong. Most accidents occur because safety methods are not enforced or practiced. Studies have shown that too often basic errors are made prior to lifting. The solution to reducing accidents is to properly educate and train personnel to recognize and avoid hazards. Cairo Marine Service, Inc. provides training programs on-site that are customized to meet each customer’s requirements. Our programs are two-part: training in the classroom and hands-on training in the field. Our proven training methods give students a thorough knowledge of the equipment so they can operate it safely.
