State & federal OSHA standards require employers to use qualified riggers during hoisting activities or whenever workers are within the fall zone, while hooking, unhooking, guiding a load, or doing the initial connection of a load to a component, material or structure. This rigging & signalperson certification course provides attendees with the training required by state & federal standards.
