Course Description

Course Description

MARCOM's interactive course on Rigging Safety in Industrial and Construction Environments reviews the hazards associated with rigging and moving loads, and discusses the equipment and safe work practices that employees should use to avoid them.

The loads that cranes lift can come in all shapes and sizes, but they can all cause serious problems if they are mishandled. Loads that have been improperly rigged can be dumped on the ground, start to spin, or swing out of control, all of which creates hazards for anything or anyone near them.

Areas covered in the course include rigging and crane safety, choosing the right sling for the load, types of hitches and how to use them, standard hand signals, lifting, moving and lowering a load safely and more. Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today.

The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood... and retained.
