The new OSHA standard states, “Employers must use qualified riggers during hoisting activities for assembly and disassembly work. Additionally, qualified riggers are required whenever workers are within the fall zone and hooking, unhooking, or guiding a load, or doing the initial connection of a load to a component or structure.
This course gives workers the knowledge needed to rig safely on the jobsite. Each participant will receive a “Qualified Rigger” certification. Course satisfies the requirements for OSHA as well as Washington State. In addition:
- Inspection and removal criteria
- Hands on inspection
- Actual rigging used for demonstrations
- Written test
- Rigging problem solving
