Rigging, Calculations, Safe Lifting

There are so many things to Rigging. Many people can say they are riggers or know how to rig a load.

But do you really know? Unless you can tie 5 knots, calculate loads, stress, angles, reduction factors, tension, you may not be a trained rigger.

I know some students/employees who can attest to they know how to rig a load properly.

Calculate the loads to within 50-100 lbs, what a competition it was for 5 different groups of 3. The grand prize winners were really close on calculations of what they thought the loads would weigh when lifted with a mobile crane using a dynamometer scale.

Congratulations to all 15 students on becoming Level 1 Riggers!!!
