Applied Rigging Practice

Course Objective

  • The course shall provide theoretical and practical knowledge in the safe methods and procedures of rigging and slinging. Upon completion of the course,
  • participants will be able to perform; basic rigging, evaluation of components, safe and proper handling of components, and inspections of components. Participants
  • will also gain knowledge in the application of chains, ropes, slings, and hardware used in rigging.
  • ndentify the four major types of sling hitches
  • Indentify parts of a wire rope
  • Describe the method of installing wire rope on a winch drum
  • Determine stress on slings used in hitches
  • Indentify the correct rigging sizes for any load weights
  • Indentify the proper procedures for using rigging hardware
  • Select the correct Slings, Shackles, Eyebolts, Chain Blocks and Lever Hoists
  • Describe the pre-use inspection criteria for a variety of sling & rigging gear types
  • Apply basic rigging calculations
  • Apply hand signals for mobile & overhead cranes
  • Calculate load weights & load dimensions
  • Rig & transfer loads safely
