Revised Crane Standard,  Qualified Rigging
and Qualified Crane Signalers

OSHA recently issued the Revised Crane and Derricks Final Rule, Subpart CC, which requires all riggers to be “Qualified”; and crane signalers to be “trained”.  Thomas Safety Solutions has developed this "Revised Crane Standard, Qualified Rigging and Qualified Crane Signaler Seminars", which are designed to deliver the knowledge requirements for Qualified Riggers, as defined by 1926.1401, and Qualified Crane Signaling personnel, as per 1926.1428, to participants at different levels.


 

Level I Qualified Rigging Seminar with Qualified Crane Signaler:

A Level I Rigger can perform simple, repetitive rigging tasks when the load weight, center of gravity, the rigging, and rigging configuration are provided or known by the rigger through experience or on-the-job training prior to the rigging activities.  Specifically, Level I Riggers should be able to demonstrate or have knowledge of how to:

  • Inspect rigging before use;

  • Identify and attach rigging with basic knowledge of hitch configurations, capacities, and basic knots;

  • Recognize associated hazards;

  • Signal operations;

  • Use various types of rigging equipment and basic hitches and their applications.

Total Hours: 6 Hours

 

Level III Qualified Rigging Seminar with Qualified Crane Signaler:

The Level III Qualified Rigger participants will learn all the above functions, as well as, learn to calculate weights, load tensions on slings, how to determine weight functions and proper rigging practices and techniques.  In this Level III Qualified Rigger and Qualified Signal Person Seminar the participant will:

The qualified rigger participant will learn to do the following:

  • Calculate load weight and determine load center of gravity;

  • Calculate stress angles and determine the safe working load;

  • Select proper hitch, sling, rigging hardware to use and determine safe working load;

  • Inspection of the equipment prior to use;

  • Control the load and operation;

  • Control the lift site and the cranes area of operation.

The Crane Signaler participant will learn and be able to:

  • Provide a general overview of crane operations and limitations;

  • Describe and demonstrate the standard crane hand signals;

  • Explain and demonstrate the correct use of voice signal communication;

  • Explain the use of non-standard and new signals;

  • Describe the basic safety practices for a crane signal person.

At the completion of this seminar the student must be able to do the following via final examination and evaluations:

  • Calculate load weight and determine load center of gravity;

  • Select proper hitch, sling, rigging hardware to use and determine safe working load;

  • Inspection of the equipment prior to use;

  • Control the load and operation;

  • Control the lift site and the cranes area of operation;

  • Meet the “Crane Signal Person” requirements.

Total Hours: 20 Hours

 

There is an exam at the end of these seminars for the Rigger portion, and an exam and practical skills evaluation for the Signaler portion, all of which require a minimum score of 70% or better to pass.  Upon successful seminar completion, participants will receive completions cards, certifying that they have met the requirements for both Riggers and Signalers as per 1926.1401 and 1926.1428.  Call for pricing, specific topics needed, or if you need special scheduling.
