This is the second time since 2008 that Al Abel, Lifting Specialist for Mazzella Companies, has earned this recognition, a testament to his consistency as a great trainer. A retired high school teacher and athletic director, Al knows how to engage students. His question and answer sessions after class are often as long as the class itself.
Comments from numerous customers indicate how much they relate to Al, but also how much they’ve learned and later applied. Al is known as one of the leading trainers in the rigging and lifting industry. Among Al’s favorite phrases: “Never be in the shadow of the load,” and “Always plan your lift.”
