CERTIFIED RIGGER LEVEL I
Job duties for Rigger Level I certification. They can perform simple, repetitive rigging tasks when the load weight, center of gravity, the rigging, and rigging configuration are provided or known by the rigger through experience or on-the-job training prior to the rigging activities. Specifically, Level I Riggers should be able to demonstrate or have knowledge of how to:
• Inspect rigging before use
• Identify and attach rigging with basic knowledge of hitch configurations, capacities, and basic knots
• Recognize associated hazards
• Signal operations
• Use various types of rigging equipment and basic hitches and their applications
CERTIFIED RIGGER LEVEL II
In addition to knowing and demonstrating Rigger Level I knowledge and skills, they can select rigging components and procedures based on rigging capacity. Unsupervised, Level II Riggers can:
• Estimate load weight and center of gravity
• Identify lift points
• Determine and select rigging based on loading
• Perform pre-use inspection of rigging and lift points
• Understand periodic inspection criteria
• Identify and attach rigging with knowledge of hitch configurations and load angle factors, rigging capacities, and load integrity
• Understand load dynamics and associated hazards As applicable, Level II Riggers will also have a working knowledge of hoisting equipment, winches, jacks, indus- trial rollers, and similar equipment.
OSHA crane and rigger standards have changed. 1926.1400 is the new osha standard for rigging equipment. this standard applies to power operated equipment used for hoisting and rigging. Crane rigging certifications can be provided nationwide. We also offer online rigging training, online signal person training, online mobile crane training. Spanish training can also be provided onsite. Rigging and signal are new on our site but we are masters at training and ensure that you get qualified training. We offer crane training info on several pages. Rigging and crane training manuals can be found on our online classes. Crane accidents could be avoided by practicing mobile crane safety and if osha rigging regulations are followed. 29 CFR 1926.1400 is a OSHA standard for hoisting and rigging and this OSHA rule requires employes on construction site to have training for rigging equipment. Rigger certification or signal person training are required to work near mobile equipment. Our training locations provide qualified rigger training, signal person training, national crane operators certification. or you can do our online training classes. Our rigging and crane training manuals will help you or your students pass there rigging class. Rigging online courses give you time to study for your test/exam. You will understand all osha rigging regulations.
