FULL TITLE: BASIC RIGGING
UNIT STANDARD: Not unit standard aligned
DESCRIPTION: The objective of the basic rigging course is to provide learners with the skills and knowledge necessary for the identification of defects associated with lifting tackle. Learners found competent at the end of the course will be able to perform safe rigging and slinging operations, in accordance with the Occupational Health & Safety Act.
DURATION: Full Training (Novice): 3 Days
COURSE CONTENT: Steel wire ropes
    We describe steel wire ropes, ordinary right-hand lay
    ropes, the core, strands and construction of a rope.
Splicing methods
    We outline mechanical splicing methods, the Afgrip     aluminum ferrule mechanical splice, the super loop     steel ferrule mechanical splice, hazards to look for when     using Afgrip ferrule slings, identification of slings,     inspection of wire rope slings and the OHS Act 85     (1993) extract.
Strength reduction of wire rope slings at
     different angles

    We look at how to work out the SWL of a rope, strength     reduction tables, principle of sling angles and an easy     way to see if the sling angle is right.
Slinging methods
    We discuss how to work out the SWL of a rope, strength     reduction tables and the dos and don'ts on wire rope
    slings.
Webbing slings
    We take learners through different slinging methods,
    sling load chart, self assessment, webbing slings,
    inspection on webbing slings, use of webbing slings,
    soft round slings and inspections.
Chain slings
    We outline types of chain slings, using chain slings          correctly, sling inspection, (WLL)/(SWL), using chain
    blocks, chain block construction, daily inspections,
    loads, inspection of chain slings, correct sling     applicationand storage of chain slings.
Important safety information concerning hooks
Shackles and eyebolts
    We describe the use of bow shackles, use of “D”     shackles, right and wrong of shackles, shackle     inspection and safe use of shackles. We talk about the     safe use of eyebolts, collared metric eyebolt, collared     metric eyebolts – safe mass load chart, self     assessment, rights and wrongs on eyebolts.
Lifting clamps
Rigging procedures and precautions
    We take learners through eccentric loading with multiple     legged slings, correct slinging methods, choker method     with wire rope slings on square loads, safe and unsafe     choker methods, hand signals for overhead, truck     mounted, and mobile crawler crane operations only as     well as hand signals for mobile crane operations.
Handling a load and site inspection
    We do a site inspection, mobile crane load chart on
    outriggers – 360°, rigging plan survey, rigging/lifting
    plan survey, rigging/lifting plan survey 2, Safe Working     Load chart on steel wire rope 6 x 36 (14/7 + 7/7/1) f,
    routine mechanical handling risk assessment,
    asymmetrical load sling calculations and Beaufort wind     scale for use on land (1 to 9).
ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS: The company and learners must meet the conditions of the training requirements before theory training can be given.

For any queries regarding the requirements and conditions of basic rigging training, feel free to contact our skills development advisor for more information.
