Setting up safe and secure rigging for a crane lift is of the utmost importance; possibly more important than the operation of the crane itself. This course gives an overview of the primary rigging issues that affect crane and hoist safety. Workers will learn about the materials used for rigging and slings, the various sling hitches used, and basic safety precautions. It is based on OSHA General Industry and Construction regulations, as well as recognized best rigging practices. It is also aligned with the 2010 OSHA regulations that require riggers in the construction industry to be qualified.

At the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Define and describe rigging and slings
  • State the importance of rigging to crane operations
  • Identify the different types of sling materials
  • Describe the different types of sling hitches
  • Identify guidelines for safe rigging including sling angle, load balancing
  • Describe inspection guidelines for wire rope, chains, and hooks
  • Identify guidelines for rigging storage

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What OSHA regulations are related to crane and hoist rigging?
Several. Check OSHA's Safety and Health Topic page on Crane, Derrick, and Hoist Safety for a list.

What are some of the factors that influence the safety of rigging?
The type of sling, the type of hitch, the sling angle, the load edge sharpness, the load capacity, and the stability of the load.

What materials might a sling be made of?
Common materials include wire rope, chain, metal mesh, and synthetic fibers.

What are some common kinds of hitches?
Vertical, bridle, basket, choker, and "endless slings."

What is a load capacity chart?
A chart that show the load capacities of different types of slings, different hitches, and different sling angles.

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

Metal mesh slings are made up of small, connected metal rings or other shapes. This results in a mesh sheet that is flexible and has a large surface area. Metal mesh slings are widely used in metalworking and other industries where loads are abrasive, hot, or sharp. The wide surface area of the mesh prevents single-point stresses that would occur on wire, rope, or chains. Also, metal mesh grips the load firmly without stretching, and helps maintain a balanced load. To prevent the sling or load from being damaged, sometimes metal mesh slings are coated with rubber or plastic.

Customer Reviews

Understanding Rigging Safety

“Our company owns and operates land oil and gas drilling rigs. Our employees move loads around on a regular basis using cranes, forklifts and hoists. We were looking for an additional training tool to re-enforce rigging safety and the Convergence Crane and Hoist Rigging Safety course was perfect for that purpose.”

Tim A.

Direct and to the Point!

“This training is clear, precise and to the point. No silly actors that detract from the training. The value is unbeatable!”

Rich R.
