The loads that cranes lift can come in all shapes and sizes, but they can all cause serious problems if they are mishandled. Loads that have been improperly rigged can be dumped on the ground, start to spin, or swing out of control, all of which creates hazards for anything or anyone near them.
This training video on “Rigging Safety in Industrial and Construction Environments” reviews the hazards associated with rigging and moving loads, and discuss the equipment and safe work practices that employees should use to avoid them.
Topics covered in these products include:
- Rigging and crane safety
- Choosing the right sling for the load
- Types of hitches and how to use them
- Standard hand signals
- Lifting, moving and lowering a load safely
- and more.
