Step Back for Safety Series: Rigging Safety
Over 90 percent of rigging-related accidents are caused by human error, and these mistakes can be deadly.
This program will help workers to maintain their safety by avoiding common lifting and hoisting mistakes. It covers key topics such as "rated capacity" and "center of gravity" and shows workers how to safely rig any load with slings and hitches.
Workers will learn to select the proper hardware, inspect all rigging components, and follow the correct procedures when rigging the load and monitoring the lift. This program can also help non-rigging personnel to build an awareness-level understanding of rigging and crane operations.
