Hoisting & Rigging – On-Site Only

$899

Lecture

2 Day

1.6 CEU

At the end of this seminar students will be able to:

  1. Practice rigging safety
  2. Calculate proper load weights and load balancing
  3. Work with rigging hardware, sling materials, and hitches
  4. Read environmental factors
  5. Safely use cranes
  • Why You should take this seminar

    Participants on this hoisting and rigging seminar will learn about rigging safety and how to calculate the weight of a load, common hitch and sling types, ropes, and locating the load’s center of gravity. At the end, you will gain proper inspection disciplines, techniques and schedules.

    This hoisting and rigging training applies to you if your business is in mining, electrical facilities, transportation, construction, the military, forestry, firefighting, lumber production, or even rope rescue. The practical knowledge gained in our Hoisting and Rigging seminar will deliver a tangible improvement in both safety and on-the-job performance.
