Rigging is the use of fibre ropes, wire ropes, chains, slings, or other attachments to lift and move objects. Rigging can only be performed by qualified workers or under the direct supervision of qualified workers. Crane operators must be certified. People working around rigging should also be trained on safe rigging practices. Many third-party training providers offer rigging courses.
