The 16 Hour Rigging Course prepares workers to perform rigging, and signaling construction work, while hoisting and lowering materials along the outside of a building. The Rigging Class shows participants the proper way to operate rigging equipment, and how to protect themselves and others around them. Workers will also receive a review of OSHA policies, ASME, and DOB regulations with an emphasis on the recognition and prevention of potential hazards.
Other topics of this rigging safety training will include instructions on how to visually inspect rigging equipment, basic crane components, crane setup and methods of applying proper rigging hitches.
