3 Reasons for Rigging Accidentsby Lindsey Ullmer on 04/09/14
- Lack of Training: When lifting rigged loads, with each lift, machinery raises possible tons upon tons of materials. Therefore, training rigging personnel thoroughly to ensure expert-level handling of every movement is necessary to decrease hazard possibility.
- Miscalculated Load Weight: Riggers determine how to lift each load based on that load’s weight. Miscalculating a load’s weight can lead to unstable lifts, which are highly dangerous.
