More Info

A CAN Rigger and Signalperson (Advanced) safety course is an important part of any rigging and signaling job. This course is designed to teach workers how to safely operate lifting equipment, identify hazards, and adhere to safe work practices.

The course includes topics such as rigging hardware, load charts, and how to use hand signals. It is also designed to teach workers how to properly inspect and maintain rigging equipment, and how to use proper body mechanics. Workers will also learn how to properly secure cargo and how to use load-bearing slings.

To take this course, workers must have a valid rigging and signaling certification. They must also have at least two years of experience in the rigging and signaling industry.

To pass the course, workers must demonstrate their knowledge of the topics covered in the course. They must also be able to accurately use hand signals and equipment in a safe manner. At the end of the course, workers will be required to take a written exam.

By taking a CAN Rigger and Signalperson (Advanced) safety course, workers can ensure that they have the knowledge and skills necessary to safely operate rigging and signaling equipment. They will be able to identify hazards, adhere to safe work practices, and help ensure that the job is completed safely and efficiently.

Our Rigger and Signalman training course is OSHA compliant, and our online version fulfills OSHA’s classroom training requirement.

This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam as required by OSHA.
