The application of sound engineering principles give new and experienced professionals the ability to tackle increasingly complex problems. This highly specialized information was once available to only a handful of specialists worldwide, Marco has made it accessible to all.
Bernd SchwengsbierPresident, Scheurle, Nicolas, Kamag
I’ve known Marco since 1995. The international experience that he brings to the table benefits every level in a transport and/or lift organization, starting from the pre-engineering phase, to equipment selection, to logistics and execution. Not only is he a true asset to our industry but I consider him a personal friend as well.

Safe performance is no ?#@*&%! accident.

Successful completion of a project is the result of education, training and engineering.

I am Marco J. van Daal and a strong believer in sharing knowledge.
The Works international offers worldwide professional Heavy Transport & Lift seminars and is dedicated to improving your project skills.

My objective for The Works international is to offer Heavy Transport & Lift training that covers every aspect associated with the execution of a project. I have been in this industry for over 20 years, have executed projects on 5 continents, in over 55 countries.

Apart from highlighting “what is out there”, the newest developments and technologies, my seminars cover the basic ground rules (laws of nature) as well as complex projects such as load-outs and multi crane lifts, but also topics such as rigging (both basic and advanced), jacking and skidding, gantries, tailing devices and last but not least, accidents and how to avoid them.

The seminars are given in public and private form, in 1-day or 2-day sessions. Public seminars are given at predetermined dates and participants can subscribe to them. Private seminars are given at the request of a client. The main purpose of the seminars is to share knowledge in order to avoid accidents and make this industry a safe(r) place to work.
