Rigging Safety

Rigging Safety

We have all heard the phrase... "A chain is only as strong as its weakest link". When it comes to crane operations, rigging can often be that "weak link". How a load is attached to a crane can make the difference between a successful lift and an unfortunate accident. And rigging-related accidents can often be deadly, due to the large and heavy loads that are lifted. A small miscalculation, or a brief moment of inattention, and tragedy could strike. Once a load or a crane itself falls not much can be done to stop it, and there is little time for people to move safely out of the way. OSHA has become so concerned about crane and rigging accidents that they have recently revised their crane safety regulations for the first time in almost 40 years!

TPC Training's online and safety video training on Rigging Safety point out to employees that over 90% of rigging-related accidents are caused by human error and that they are the key to preventing these incidents.
