An excerpt from ISNetworld® RAVS®* Safety plan Cal/OSHA Rigging Material Handling Program

Planning for safe rigging and lifting must begin at the design stage, and lifting procedures must be developed for assembly and installation. The lifting procedure should be developed and discussed with the rigging crew supervisor.

Riggers are responsible for final rigging and for carrying out whatever moves have been designated. The supervisor must make certain that personnel know how to move objects safely by hand or with mechanical devices in the operations normal to the area and must permit only those employees who are formally qualified by training and certification to operate a fork truck, crane, or hoist. The supervisor must enforce the use of safe lifting techniques and maintain lifting equipment in good mechanical condition.

Employees are required to observe all established safety regulations relating to safe lifting techniques. All employees shall be kept clear of loads about to be lifted and of suspended loads.

The Responsible Safety Officer provides training programs followed by certification for employees who have demonstrated the ability to operate fork trucks of up to 4-ton capacity and for incidental crane operations that require no special rigging.

The Operator/Rigger Training Program is administered by the RSO, Replace with Safety Person’s Name, or designated person. The training staff consists of a qualified crane consultant, professional riggers, and the Responsible Safety Officer. There are two levels of required training and performance:

Professional Operator/Rigger: Person whose principal assignment includes crane operation and rigging functions. The chief operator/rigger must ensure that those professional operator/riggers under his/her supervision maintain the necessary qualifications.

Incidental Operator/Rigger: Person who performs operating/rigging functions as an incidental part of his/her normal work assignment. Persons in this category are restricted to lower load limits and rigging of specific types of hardware.
