Improper rigging of a load or a rigging failure can expose riggers and other workers nearby to a variety of potential hazards. Therefore all loads must be safely
rigged prior to a lift.
The following are topics that should be discussed with workers prior to beginning rigging operations:
• Hazards associated with rigging operations.
• Role and responsibility of each rigger’s assigned task.
• Establishing a goal for the day.
• Weight of material and equipment being hoisted.
• Identifying the various shapes on the surface of equipment being hoisted.
• Lifting limitations of gear and hoisting devices.
• Communication used by all personnel.
• Disconnecting techniques used to complete the task.
Sharing the safe work practices and information in this guide sheet will help keep workers safe. Preventing damage to lifting gear, lifting equipment, vessel components and other loads is also critical...
