Crane Rigging and Signal Person
Instructor: Rob Scherbarth, Overton Safety

Do you know the critical components of a safe crane lift? Are your signal person's certified?

This is a one day class for both certifications

Correct Rigging and Signaling is is essential to make the lift safe. Understanding how to calculate load weights, sling angles, and knowing about wire rope are all critical for the Rigger. If you do not know the proper Rigging techniques, your load could be improperly attached and the Rigging could fail.  

Learn the rejection criteria for wire rope and synthetic slings, how to rig an unstable load, and how to select the proper type of wire rope. When you complete this 8-hour course, you will be eligible for your company to make you a “Competent Rigger.” At the end of the course, you will also receive a 100-page reference manual.

This class also offers either in combination with rigging or as a stand-alone certification

Additionally there is a "Train the Trainer" certification available for both Rigging and Signal Person that allows the attendee to qualify their own employees.
