Sooner or later, anybody who loves a heavy equipment operator is going to want to get a gift for that person, and not just any gift will do. You might want to honor a recent graduate from one of the ATS Training Classes, for instance. The schedule goes all year round for heavy equipment, crane, and CDL license training so there’s always a new group of graduates ready to face the future.
Of course, the coming holidays have gifts on everybody’s mind, too. But there are only so many “I DRIVE A LOADER” coffee mugs anybody wants, so choosing the right kind of gift is a good idea.
The Skilled Trades Deserve The Best Gift
A heavy equipment or crane operator will generally be doing a challenging job outside. Truck drivers are in and out of the cab, too. Think about giving work gear that makes the job easier:
- Good work gloves
- Comfortable, protective work boots
- Winter gear that handles sweat and times of inaction, like high tech long underwear
- High-performance socks
- Travel mugs that don’t spill and keep drinks hot or cold
- Gift certificates for gear
Every job has different challenges, and the list may change with a specific location. The idea to keep in mind is that a professional who works in the skilled trades industry is going to appreciate a gift that can be used hard every day. It’s better to give a hard-working heavy equipment operator one expensive, high-quality item that will last for years than it is to give a pile of cheaper presents that break by next year.
