Hoisting and Rigging Training
Insufficient rigging can be costly, often leading to property or equipment damage, critical injuries or worse. Ensuring loads are rigged correctly is a key to preventing these events from occurring. Our program focuses on how and why these incidents occur and the role a competent rigger plays in preventing them. The overall goal of this program is to provide riggers with the knowledge and skill required to confidently and properly rig and sling loads.
