General Lifting Appliance Operation Rigging (PH4145)
The Rigging – General Lifting Appliance Operation course is designed for personnel that have the responsibility to do rigging with only general type lifting appliances. These general appliances would include items like hoists, jack, winches and come-a-longs. This training will provide the skills necessary to evaluate loads, select the appropriate hitch and hardware, and then rig all categories of loads. Personnel will be qualified to perform daily inspections, assess rigging safety, properly communicate with other riggers during lifts, and to ensure overall safety during material handling/lifting processes. Those attending this training will learn operating principles, operational safety, load control methods, inspection procedures, communications, and load handling for only general lifting appliances. As the training includes some hands-on activities involving rigging and moving loads, you are expected to provide personal protective equipment, such as a hard hat, gloves, safety glasses, and steel toe shoes.
