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 Systems' 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.
Topics covered in this industrial safety course include:– Recent changes in the OSHA crane safety regulations.
– Qualified/competent riggers and signalers.
– Personal protective equipment.
– Equipment inspection.
– Slings and hitches.
– Hand signals and load angles.
