What is Rigging?

Rigging is the process of planning, selecting, and using complex slinging techniques to move material using cranes or hoists. It is a highly skilled trade that requires training and certification. Riggers are responsible for the safety of the workers and equipment they are using, as well as the load they are lifting. Rigging involves attaching loads to cranes or other lifting devices using various types of hardware, such as chains, ropes, pulleys, and blocks. A rigger must be able to calculate the weight of the load and the size and capacity of the crane or other lifting device being used. They must also know how to secure the load so that it does not displace while it is being lifted. Riggers must also be familiar with OSHA regulations and standards pertaining to rigging operations. They must be able to properly inspect all rigging equipment before each use and keep accurate records of all inspections.
