In nearly every production environment, there are heavy loads to be moved, and it is the job of the riggers to make sure that those loads are safely connected to the lifting device, whether it is a hoist, a crane, or below the forks of a fork lift.
Rigging and weight handling are topics covered by multiple standards from many agencies, including ASME, ANSI, and OSHA. Determining the required level of training can be complicated.
ITS has several levels of rigging training to address your needs. Each of the courses shown to the left include all of the information needed to teach your employees how to rig loads safely and effectively. Each course is designed to build upon knowledge established in the previous course, although they can be taken independently if you have experienced riggers you would like to have certified. Just contact us and we'll let you know what information we'll need in order to allow the employee to take the advaced courses.
Our curriculum is based on James Headley's Book, Rigging, published by the Crane Institute of America. Each student who completes the Certified Rigger or Advanced Rigger course will get a copy of this invaluable manual.
