Rigging and Slinging Training Course
US $200.00

While lifting equipment is regularly used on ships without incident, these operations sometimes cause accidents. These can be very costly and often involve injury to personnel and damage to equipment. These accidents are often caused by lack of maintenance and inspection or crew not following procedures, such as pre-use checks. With man-riding becoming more common, it is very important that the crane used is fit for purpose.

The purpose of this training programme is to provide general and useful information about safe rigging and slinging practice. The program does not cover all types of equipment on ships/rigs but efforts have been made to cover the most common used equipment and provide the most useful and relevant information on each type of equipment.

On completion of this course you will receive a Course Diploma.
