Basic Rigging and Qualified Signal Person Certification
Attend this training to meet the new Federal OSHA standards for rigging and signaling. Correct rigging is essential to make the lift safe. Understanding how to calculate load weights, sling angles, and knowing about wire rope are all critical for the rigger. If you do not know the proper rigging techniques, your load could be improperly attached, and the rigging could fail. Learn the rejection criteria for wire rope and synthetic slings as well as inspection requirements, how to rig a stable load, and how to select the proper slings and hardware.

Signal persons play key roles on a construction site. They are the crane operator’s eyes and ears on the ground and have a major responsibility in guiding operations. The signal person training course focuses on the role and responsibility that signal persons have, performing proper hand signals for both mobile crane and tower crane operations, and understanding voice commands.

OSHA requires a signal person when:

  • The point of operation is not in full view of the operator.
  • The operator’s view is obstructed in the direction the equipment is traveling.
  • Either the operator or the person handling the load determines that a signal person is needed because of site-specific safety concerns.

Course participants will have an understanding of the fundamentals of proper signaling and the ability to identify potential safety problems.

This course meets OSHA 29 CFR 1926-1400 compliance standards for Qualified Signal Person, identified under §1926.1428. This training also satisfies ASME B30.5 requirements applicable to general industry.

When you complete this 10-hour course, you will receive a Basic Rigging and Qualified Signal Person card.
