In this course, we will be going over the fundamentals of rigging in the construction industry. This information can carry over into the manufacturing and material handling industries as well. We will start with going over center of gravity, weights, and reactions and then move on to individual components of rigging. We will walk through rigging safety and major laws that affect the industry. After learning about the components, we will work through basic lifting lug design and spreader design. Then, we will complete full rigging design on modules from the lug to the crane hook. After this course, a person should be able to start with a piece to lift and be able to design a complete rigging system to safely and efficiently lift that piece.
