All “Signalpersons” and “Riggers” shall be qualified when utilizing crane operations. OSHA defines qualified as “a person who, by possession of a recognized degree, certificate, or professional standing, or who by extensive knowledge, training, and experience, successfully demonstrates the ability to solve/resolve problems relating to the subject matter, the work, or the project.” This is a mandatory requirement in accordance with the new crane standard regulations.

OSHA has made distinct designations with “qualified signal person evaluators” for both in-house and third-party groups. Third party evaluations are transferable from employer to employer and in-house evaluations are specific to that employer and the scope of work they are working under.

Safety Resources, Inc. is offering a one-day course to train “experienced riggers” in rigging and signaling. This class is designed to provide a more detailed knowledge base for those employees who have some basic experience with rigging and signaling operations but require a more detailed course to be considered qualified. It will also start to prepare the attendees to pass an accredited certification test if he or she chooses to do so.

COST:          $389.00/ per attendee  
                     $329.00/per attendee with 3+ employees registered
