Friday Focus: A Crane Operator’s Life



This week's Friday Focus video shares the behind the scenes life of crane operator and YouTuber Joris Cleiren from Belgium. His short film takes you to on a journey to experience what it's like to climb to the top of cranes and see operations from inside the cabin. 

Cleiren certainly loves his job and even imparts some wisdom as he says: “When you [find a] job you really love, you will never have to work!”

He adds in the comments: “You have a big responsibility and you have to be [focused every second for] seven hours! You need to operate a huge machine around people, so you need to be aware of dangers.”

PTI recently shared a video of Cleiren loading containers on a Grimaldi ConRo ship at the Port of Antwerp, which gained attention for the level of skill shown through a boom camera on a Liebherr LHM 550 Mobile Harbour Crane.

If you're impressed by Cleiren's video and also want to become a famous crane operator, check out PTI's Liebherr Maritime Cranes Supplier Directory for more knowledge on how to master the profession.
