Industrial Rigging

Description:

On many industrial settings, cranes are a common site. Cranes make it possible to lift and move heavy loads which might otherwise be impossible. Rigging is the most critical part of crane operations. Rigging is the selection, preparation of materials, supplies, equipment or other items, for lifting with the crane. Rigging involves making sure the type and capacity of the crane and the rigging equipment used is appropriate for the load. Rigging also involves balancing and securing the load to be lifted. This workshop will focus on proper and safe rigging of a load. OSHA crane and rigging standards will be incorporated into this workshop.
