Rigging Courses

RIGGING COURSES

INDUSTRY FUNDING AVAILABLE FOR SELECTED COURSES*

Rigging is the process used in securing materials to be moved by cranes, hoists and various other lifting equipment. When securing a load with slings or chains, there are many factors to be considered. These may include the working load limit of the hoisting equipment, the weight of the load and rigging equipment, and the capacity of the hoist.

It is vital that workers involved in rigging activities are trained in both the safety and operating procedures as most accidents occur due to the lack of training of the rigger.
