Generally a chain of mistakes combine to form a cumulative outcome known as an accident. The interactive training presented on Monday, February 27, 2017, will explore many of the ingredients necessary for successful load handling activities and will also offer various alternatives to mitigate detrimental contributory factors.

The Sling and Rigging training offered by AWEA and presented by Lift-It Manufacturing consists of interactive classroom instruction in basic to intermediate rigging activities and addresses two primary areas of information: sling use and inspection.

Sling use topics include instruction on:

  • - Sling designs and components on a generic level, with an emphasis upon proper application
  • - Load weight, sling angle, tension and center of gravity calculations for symmetrical loads are presented in an interactive format
  • - Rigging practices, sling protection and environmental considerations are also covered as well as three accidents scenarios with not only the root causes, but more importantly preventative measures which could assist you in not duplicating the same errors

Participants are tested and receive a certificate issued by Lifting Equipment and Engineers Association (LEEA) a prestigious international organization that provides training and also accredited the Sling & Rigging training you will attend.

In addition, participants will receive many valuable takeaways including: 500 Page Rigging Resource Guide, Rigger's Handbook, Rigger Reference Card and a Sling Angle Protractor.
