Week 2 came to a close, there was some serious rigging going on in Augusta, Georgia. Students said “they wanted more, so we gave em more”. More rigging, calculations, inspections, mobile cranes, slings, square roots, length times width, Pie, and a beautiful day to be outside. Some of the groups were so close to guessing the weights of items picked up with the mobile crane. But the students who did the work, (calculating using their rigging cards, sling cards, angle indicator cards, were within 5-10 % of the actual weight of the items. Bravo Zulu to all the employees for their interest in taking their rigging skills to the next level.
May your rigging journey be adventurous and safe!!! Rig to the center of gravity is what was repeated so many times that week. Thanks for the memories.
