Sixteen hours of intense study covering intermediate to advanced rigging applications. This course prepares the rigger to safely perform Level 2 rigging activity. The rigger will be trained to calculate tensions based on sling angles of symmetric and non-symmetric loads, headroom limitations and load weights. The rigger will learn to select the safest and most efficient slings and hardware for the job. Crane communication skills and pre-use inspection techniques are also part of this valuable training.
Part 1. General:
- Inspection Types – Initial, frequent and periodic.
- Proof Testing – Review pull-testing requirements for wire rope, alloy chain, metal mesh, synthetic web and synthetic roundslings.
Part 2. Sling Inspection: Review the following sling types and their respective tagging and general inspection requirements. Includes a demonstration of periodic inspection requirements per the current ASME B.30.9 Standard.
- Web Slings
- Wire Rope Slings
