Program Title:
Rigging Safety Rules During Loading & Unloading Operation
15.04.2018 - 19.04.2018
$ 3500


Course Objective:

     This Course is intended as a working guide for training workers and supervisors in the fundamentals of safe rigging and hoisting.

     The information covers not only ropes and knots but hoisting equipment from cranes to chain falls and rigging hardware from rope clips to spreader beams. Equally important is the attention paid at every point to correct procedures for inspection, maintenance, and operation.

     Knowledge of the equipment and materials with which we work is one of the most important factors in occupational health and safety. Each item has been designed and developed to serve a specific purpose. Recognizing its capabilities and limitations not only improves efficiency but minimizes hazards and helps prevent accidents.

     This manual identifies the basic hazards in rigging and hoisting, explains the safeguards necessary to control or eliminate these hazards, and spells out other essential safety requirements.

     The information should be used in conjunction with the applicable regulations by contractors, supervisors, operators, riggers, and others delivering or receiving instruction in the basics of safe rigging and hoisting.


Who Should Attends:

      This course is designed for engineers, supervisors, and all staff who work in the field.
