If the rigging is not done correctly, there is a risk of serious harm or perhaps death. According to estimates provided by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the vast majority of incidents of this nature are avoidable if appropriate safety procedures are taken at work sites. This presents a significant challenge for both the personnel who are exposed and their company. OSHA’s standard for rigging sets up uniform requirements to make certain that the hazards connected with rigging in workplaces across the United States are evaluated, safety procedures are put into place, and the appropriate hazard information is communicated to all workers who are potentially significantly affected.
29 CFR 1926.251 is applicable to rigging equipment used in hoisting, lowering or pulling loads.
This course is designed to make employees aware of both the hazards related to rigging as well as correct rigging practices.
