Rigging and Slinging (RS)
Rigging and slinging also referred to as hoisting, is an important step in the maneuvering of heavy objects in many workplaces. It is most common to see rigging done on construction sites, or out at sea on cargo ships. Sometimes it is impossible to move an object through other means, so it becomes necessary to employ the services of a rigger.
Safe rigging is important because there are many variables that are at play while a rigger attempts to hoist a large object. Rigging is not a task that should be completed in a hurry. It requires knowledge, mathematical precision, and determination.
Rigging and slinging are commonly used techniques when transporting heavy materials via cranes or pulley systems. Though this process can appear simple, there are many moving parts and considerations that go into every lift. As a result, it’s crucial that riggers are well-trained in the best safety and performance practices. That’s why we offer an in-depth rigging and slinging training program.
This course provides information on safe rigging and slinging techniques that comply with relevant standards. By completing this rigging and slinging safety course, operators will have the knowledge they need to stay safe.
