MARCOM Group Ltd., The Description:
MARCOM's "Rigging Safety" Videotape Program points out to employees that over 90 percent of rigging-related accidents are caused by human error... and that they are the key to preventing these incidents. We have all heard the phrase... "A chain is only as strong as its weakest link". When it comes to crane operations, Rigging can often be that "weak link". How a load is attached to a crane can make the difference between a successful lift and an unfortunate accident. And Rigging-related accidents can often be deadly, due to the large and heavy loads that are lifted. A small miscalculation, or a brief moment of inattention, and tragedy could strike. Once a load falls not much can be done to stop it, and there is little time for people to move safely out of the way. A coworker can be injured or killed, and expensive equipment and cargo could be damaged or destroyed... even the crane itself.
The Videotape includes information on physical and mental preparation, personal protective equipment, equipment inspection, hazard assessment, slings and hitches, hand signals, load angles, and more. The Videotape Training Program comes with a comprehensive Leader's Guide, reproducible Scheduling & Attendance Form, Employee Quiz, Training Certificate and Training Log.

If we missa step in the rigging process things could go seriously wrong. In order toprevent rigging related accidents we need to stay alert, and follow the safetyrules. The first step in preventing accidents is preparation. Let’s begin by takinga close look at the unique set of signals that are used in the rigging process.Communication is essential in a rigger’s work. In order to move a loadsuccessfully both the rigger and the crane operator need to use a number ofhand signals. Let’s review the basics. To indicate to an operator that you wantthe hook on the crane lowered, point downward and move your hand in smallcircles. When the load is ready to be hoisted, raise your arm, and point up.Then move your hand in small circles. By extending one arm out to the side withyour palm facing down, and moving your arm back and forth horizontally you canshow you want the crane to stop.
