Congratulations to the new qualified sling and rigging inspectors in Alabama.
These students spent time learning about the OSHA and ASME regulations/standards for slings and rigging hardware. Also, correct engineering, manufacturing and labeling of below the hook devices.
All students were required to successfully pass a written exam and practical exam. The students spent hours inspecting good and bad slings and rigging hardware. These items were actual, in use items removed by CCTI, Inc. during Periodic (annual) Inspections at facilities located all over the United States. The instructor combined good and faulty equipment to ensure correct inspection procedures were followed.
Training comments received after training completion, indicated this training allowed the students to actually have hands on training. Learning about the OSHA and ASME regulations/standards helped with rejection criteria requirements. Multiple students indicated that sometimes slings and rigging hardware were used when faulty just because of not knowing the rejection criteria. However, the employees indicated they are now comfortable with the understanding of what is a good and bad sling and rigging hardware and will perform their inspections according the OSHA and ASME regulations and standards.
Thanks for all the hard work and Happy Inspecting!!!
