Safety measures to guard yourself against rigging hazards

by American Crane And Safety OSHA rigging and signal training

If you are planning to work in the rigging industry, then there are different kinds of safety hazards you have to deal with. You have to face them on a daily basis; therefore, you need to know how to tackle those hazards appropriately. 

To handle the risk of rigging, you need to enroll yourself in a certified rigging safety training course. Here are some things you can learn through the course:

  • Evaluating the weight of the load- Your first priority should be to know the actual weight of the load before lifting it up. Making the best estimation of the load will secure you from an accident.
  • Checking for possible dangers- Be attentive with the overhead electric power lines before lifting a load. Make sure to inspect the location of the site where the activity of rigging will be performed.

  • Choosing a favorable weather condition- When you’re performing a rigging operation, then be prepared for the weather conditions. Avoid working in dark, or in bright sunlight as it may affect your operation badly. And with extremely cold weather, avoid shock-loading as it may be dangerous for you.
  • Selecting the right sling- Choose the one in accordance with your projects needs and requirements. Calculate the pressure in each sling-leg correctly as a difference of an inch can be risky for you.

So, these are the important rules that you need during the operation. And on the other hand, you should also opt for the certified rigging safety courses in Spanish to avoid accidents and make your operation successful.
