A Rigging and Slinging course is designed to provide candidates with the required knowledge and understanding of relevant legislation and provide them with the skills and techniques use during lifting operations and the correct and safe use of equipment.
Rigging and Slinging is the process of lifting and moving heavy objects using ropes, chains, or mechanical devices. Here is an introduction to how you can be a certified Rigger and Slinger.
Rigging is the process of lifting and moving objects. Slinging is the name for the materials used to connect the load to the crane or any other type of lifting device.
A Rigging and Slinging course is a theoretical and practical course. The training is tailored to personnel working on board of ships and oil and gas platforms.
Rigging and Slinging are operations that require a firm grasp on how to operate machinery and equipment safely. Often, the objects are odd sizes or extremely heavy. Those characteristics in themselves are part of the reason why the job requires specialized training.
The training aims to provide delegates with tools and skill-set that will increase both the safety and the efficiency of their work. During the course, delegates will be able to know their role and responsibilities when rigging & lifting. The course also aims to provide delegates with an awareness of lifting equipment and its safe and correct use.
The OPITO Rigging Stage 1 Training consists of 3 consecutive days of theoretical and practical lessons. The training concludes with a written and practical evaluation.
After being certified for stage 1 Rigging the next step is stage 2, which is supervised workplace experience. In stage 2, the candidate records a complete list of prescribed lifting tasks in a logbook. The log serves as proof that the candidate, under supervision of experienced lifting operators, is progressing and ultimately becomes ready to advance to Rigger stages 3 and 4. This process must be completed within two years.
A fully completed logbook is a prerequisite for Rigger stage 3, where they will have their competency assessed by qualified assessors.
Stage 4 is for personnel, who after two years, need to have their competency reassessed.
Employees with no Rigger certificate can apply for stage 3 assessment provided that they can verify lifting operational experience that equals the lifts to be conducted in the stage 2 logbook.
To make sure delegates get most out of the training, the aim is to cover all the fundamental aspects of the job and responsibilities. That includes topics such as relevant legislation, personal responsibilities, ACOPs applicable standards and guidelines and safe systems of work.
Naturally, rigging and slinging techniques are also at the core of the training.
