APS Chainfall Hoist Training

How to use the Remote Training system:

  1. You may use the chainfall hoists located in the experimental stations at the APS only with training from the APS and authorization from your Beamline host.
  2. The required training course for APS Chainfall Hoists is APS21111. This is a hands-on course.
  3. To arrange for training please contact Bruno Fieramosca (630-252-0201) or the Floor Coordinator on duty at 2-0101.


If you need help lifting or moving heavy objects, the APS can provide the services of
professional riggers. Ask your beamline host to make these arrangements for you.
