What is a qualified rigger?

A qualified rigger “possesses a recognized degree, certificate, or professional standing, OR who by extensive knowledge, training and experience, can successfully demonstrate the ability to solve problems related to rigging loads”.

Which OSHA requirements must a rigger meet to be considered a qualified signal person?

A Signalperson is required, according to OSHA regulations, in the following situations: The operator does not have a full view of the point of operation. The operator’s view is obstructed in the direction that the equipment is moving. The operator or the person handling the load feels that a signalperson is needed.

What does a certified rigger do?

certified rigger is a person who has been trained and certified to handle and move loads. The level of certification depends upon the individual’s training, knowledge, skill base, and ability to perform functions related to the selection, inspection, and proper use of rigging equipment.

Signalperson and Rigger: Qualification vs. Certification

The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has specific—but different—qualification requirements for signalpersons and riggers. In both cases people often wonder whether “certification” equals “qualification,” and, if not, what the difference is. The main difference is the level of testing required. Qualification is done by the employer and may or may not involve formal testing; it is at the discretion of the employer’s qualified evaluator. Certification requires third-party testing to provide a consistent and accurate means to determine a person’s technical knowledge and hands-on skills related to the task.

Savannah, GA

Savannah ( sə-VAN) is the oldest city in the U.S. state of Georgia and is the county seat of Chatham County. Established in 1733 on the Savannah River, the city of Savannah became the British colonial capital of the Province of Georgia and later the first state capital of Georgia. A strategic port city in the American Revolution and during the American Civil War, Savannah is today an industrial center and an important Atlantic seaport. It is Georgia’s fifth-largest city, with a 2020 U.S. Census population of 147,780. The Savannah metropolitan area, Georgia’s third-largest, had a 2020 population of 404,798.

Each year Savannah attracts millions of visitors to its cobblestone streets, parks, and notable historic buildings. These buildings include the birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low (founder of the Girl Scouts of the USA), the Georgia Historical Society (the oldest continually operating historical society in the South), the Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences (one of the South’s first public museums), the First African Baptist Church (one of the oldest African-American Baptist congregations in the United States), Temple Mickve Israel (the third-oldest synagogue in the U.S.), and the Central of Georgia Railway roundhouse complex (the oldest standing antebellum rail facility in the U.S.).

Savannah’s downtown area, which includes the Savannah Historic District, its 22 parklike squares, and the Savannah Victorian Historic District, is one of the largest National Historic Landmark Districts in the United States (designated by the U.S. government in 1966). Downtown Savannah largely retains the original town plan prescribed by founder James Oglethorpe (a design now known as the Oglethorpe Plan).

Savannah was the host city for the sailing competitions during the 1996 Summer Olympics held in Atlanta.
