    Rigger Training Stage 2

    Course Objective

    • The rigger course covers the relevant legislation and regulation and provides an opportunity to practice basic rigging operations following a lifting plan.
    • Delegates will complete a theory test at the end of the stage 1 training program to demonstrate an understanding of the knowledge elements of the course. Performance in the practical exercises in which delegates must take an active part will also be evaluated against learning outcomes.
    The following points shall be discussed in the course:
    • Know specific regulations required for the rigger.
    • Demonstrate and State the use of hand signals.
    • Identify crane types and their major components.
    • State function of and inspection requirements for rigging hardware.
    • Demonstrate how to do Load Estimation.
    • Pre-use inspection and removal criteria of slings and rigging hardware.
    • How to identify the working load limits for all slings and rigging gear.
    • The effects of sling angle tension created from bridle hitch configurations.
    • Load balance and center of gravity.
    • Know and understand requirements to keep clear of the load.
    • Know and understand the dangers of working around energized power lines.
