Course Overview

OSHA requires Signal Persons & Riggers to be qualified. The CI® Certified OSHA Signal Person & Rigger Training program teaches construction professionals how to communicate with the crane operator when the point of operation is not in full view of the operator (29 CFR 1926.1419(a)); or when the operator’s view is obstructed in the direction the equipment is travelling; or when either the operator or person handling the load determines that a signalman is needed because of site-specific safety concerns.

Employers MUST use Qualified Riggers during hoisting activities for assembly and disassembly work (29 CFR 1926.1404(r)(1)). Additionally, Qualified Riggers are required whenever workers are within the fall zone and hooking, unhooking, or guiding a load, or doing the initial connection of a load to a component or structure (29 CFR 1926.1425(c)).

This course will provide the necessary training to be a CI® Certified OSHA Qualified Signal Person & Qualified Rigger.
