Introduction to Machine Rigging 111
This class provides an overview of the equipment used in rigging. Rigging is the process of securing and moving loads within the workplace. Rigging equipment includes block and tackle systems, hoists, cranes, ropes, chains, slings, and attachment devices. The specific equipment used for an application depends on the weight of the load. Calculating loads and using appropriate lifting devices are important for ensuring safety during rigging. Rigging safety also involves regular inspection of all equipment to prevent failure and dangerous hazards.
Rigging is an important aspect of any workplace that must move objects and materials. Knowledge of rigging equipment and practices is important for keeping both employees and equipment safe. After taking this class, users will be familiar with the equipment used for rigging and general best practices for working with it.
