Safe Rigging Practices
We have all heard the phrase, "A chain is only as strong as its weakest link." When it comes to crane operations, rigging can often be that weak link. How a load is attached to a crane can make the difference between a successful lift and an unfortunate accident. OSHA has become so concerned about crane and rigging accidents that they revised their crane and rigging safety regulations to be even more stringent. By learning how to rig a load safely and communicate clearly, employees can steer clear of situations that may place them and their coworkers in danger. This program is designed to help employees understand safe rigging practices.
