Rigging & Lifting
Too frequently, the need to lift something on the worksite surpasses the need to do it safely, contributing to accidents and injury. Many workers grab the nearest rope or chain, poorly secure the item to the machine and haul away. Unfortunately, the majority of workers are not aware that there are load limitations and life cycles for Rigging and Lifting equipment, nor are they familiar with the dangerous signs of wear in ropes, chains, hooks and other equipment.
A complete training program can eliminate these shortfalls and guide your employees to safely conduct Rigging and Lifting operations.
