April 16 & 17 (3 P.M. – 7 P.M. each day)
Moving large, heavy loads is crucial in today’s construction industry. Overhead lifting is a special event and risk is created every time a load is lifted off the ground. Rigging and lifting operations affect virtually all construction trades, and each load that requires rigging has unique properties that can range from the simple to the complex. OSHA defines a qualified rigger as a person that possesses a recognized degree, certificate or professional standing, or has extensive knowledge, training and experience and can successfully demonstrate the ability to solve problems related to rigging loads.
This 8-hour course addresses the fundamentals of rigging. It is designed for individuals involved in rigging and handling suspended loads in construction, manufacturing, utilities and various environments that must adhere to OSHA regulations. The course will cover not only basic skills but also the more advanced. By using audience response software that allow response and scoring of attendees throughout the course, audience participation is increased. Specific areas to be covered include:
Cost: $175 per person for Members of AGC, NESCA or ECA
