What is a rigger and what is rigging work? The traditional definition of a rigger is a person that uses hoists and pulleys. The industry extends the term, however, to define anyone engaged in the lifting, moving and transporting, positioning, pulling and securing of heavy equipment, machines and oversized loads. In the construction industry riggers work closely with cranes, overhead lifting gear, pulleys, load moving dollies, hydraulic jacks, and flat-bed trucks. The importance of rigging work Operating cranes is dangerous work and rigging plays a fundamental role to ensure efficient lifts without incident. Cranes are powerful machines capable of lifting and lowering heavy loads and transporting them to other places. The potential for a catastrophic accident leading to costly damage, injury or death is part of every load that a crane lifts and the rig is the critical link between the crane and the load. Riggers that have had the correct rigging safety training will ensure that ever lift performed has had every precaution considered. Rigging training and certification The importance of adequate preparation and training before attempting any kind of rigging work cannot be over emphasised. You should be sufficiently trained on rigging safety and be the holder of a nationally recognised high risk work rigging licence or be working under the direct supervision of a competent person who has acquired through training, qualification, experience or a combination of these, the knowledge and skill enabling that person to correctly perform the required task, for example a licensed crane operator, dogman or rigger. Basic level rigging training is the first step and a great foundation for a successful rigging career and completing nationally recognised rigging training will allow individuals to achieve industry approved certifications that will place them on a path to an exciting and rewarding career. As rigging work is classified as a ‘high risk work’ activity, the correct training and assessment must be undertaken before an industry recognised high risk work (HRW) licence for rigging can be attained. A high risk work licence for rigging is required for people undertaking work where decisions regarding slinging techniques are required
