Rigging Level 1

Congratulations to the graduates of rigging level 1 at Graphic Packaging in Macon, GA.

How do I tie a knot? Well they learned 5 different knots to help with rigging loads.

How do I know what the load weighs? Well they calculate the size, dimensions and table weight of the object being lifted.

How do I rig the load to the hook? Well they get slings, shackles, swivel hoist rings, turnbuckles, spreader bars to assist with lifting the load centered on the CG.

Good job by all and we even got to use the newly qualified Mobile Crane Operators to make the lift after discussing our lift plans per the item they were to lift.

The best part was to see who came the closest to the actual weight. After all calculations, the teams lifted the items using a dynamometer to see the actual weighs of each item.

Well done to all and down below are some of the great rigging procedures used for lifting. See you again soon in the field rigging and lifting.
