Basics of Civil Rigging

The goal of Bigfoot’s Civil Rigging Course is to educate the untrained worker. The course focuses on the proper use of equipment, on lifting practices, and on the potential hazards of the work environment.

Eighty percent of rigging failures are due to slings being cut, and that’s where our course comes in to teach proper inspection and safe use of slings & hardware.

In addition to explaining current regulations, the course also helps workers to know what questions to ask when lifting loads, so that they can use taglines effectively and keep a safe distance from hazards.
