Rigger III Course Overview:

The course teaches the correct usage and pre-use inspection of rigging equipment, slings, and below-the-hook lifting devices, as well as rejection criteria, so that students are able to recognise broken equipment and remove it from service before it creates a hazardous situation. Workers are instructed on how to conduct periodic inspections, including how the accumulation of minor flaws can lead to harmful equipment.

Targeted Audience:

  • Managers
  • Supervisors
  • Foreman
  • Riggers
  • Operators of Legal Age.

Course Outline:

This curriculum covers both technical training and the necessary exam to fulfil standards.

The course shows the proper usage and pre-use inspection of rigging gear, slings, and below-the-hook lifting devices to ensure that participants are competent.

Following completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Assess any risks posed by the hoisting procedure.
  • Take control measures to address the hazards that have been identified.
  • Determine the path for lifting and transporting the weight to minimise risks to employees and the environment.
  • Provide an accurate assessment of the load’s approximate weight, including a sufficient safety factor.
  • Discuss, discuss, and ensure that the lifting team understands the planned lifting plan and risk assessment.
  • Discuss, discuss, and agree with the necessary employees on the emergency procedures for the lifting operation.
  • Notify the appropriate staff of the lifting operation and identify any potential operational disruptions.
  • Acquire the resources listed in the lifting plan as necessary for moving the load, in accordance with applicable rigging loft procedures.
  • Verify that the lifting equipment and lifting accessories are devoid of evident flaws and that the certification is current.
    Inspect lifting equipment and lifting accessories before to use.
  • Arrange the load according to the lifting plan’s stipulated specifications.
  • Safeguard the weight from potential damage during the hoisting process.
  • Connect the lifting accessories to the load using standard practises in the industry.
  • Find the centre of gravity of a weight whose centre of gravity is offset.
  • Install and place the lifting equipment such that its load is distributed evenly.
