Rigging Safety - OSHA Safety Training: We have all heard the phrase... "A chain is only as strong as its weakest link". When it comes to crane operations, rigging can often be that "weak link". How a load is attached to a crane can make the difference between a successful lift and an unfortunate accident. And rigging-related accidents can often be deadly, due to the large and heavy loads that are lifted. A small miscalculation, or a brief moment of inattention, and tragedy could strike. Once a load falls not much can be done to stop it, and there is little time for people to move safely out of the way. A coworker can be injured or killed, and expensive equipment and cargo could be damaged or destroyed... even the crane itself.
Our training products on "Rigging Safety" point out to employees that over 90% of rigging-related accidents are caused by human error... and that they are the key to preventing these incidents. Topics covered in these products include:
- Physical and mental preparation.
- Personal protective equipment.
- Equipment inspection.
- Hazard assessment.
- Slings and hitches.
- Hand signals.
- Load angles.
- and more.
