Product Line: MARCOM Construction Safety Kit Series
MARCOM's Rigging Safety in Construction Environments Construction Safety Kit points out to employees that over 90 percent of rigging-related accidents are caused by human error... and that they are the key to preventing these incidents. We have all heard the phrase... A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. When it comes to crane operations, rigging can often be that weak link. How a load is attached to a crane can make the difference between a successful lift and an unfortunate accident. And rigging-related accidents can often be deadly, due to the large and heavy loads that are lifted. A small miscalculation, or a brief moment of inattention, and tragedy could strike. Once a load falls not much can be done to stop it, and there is little time for people to move safely out of the way. A coworker can be injured or killed, and expensive equipment and cargo could be damaged or destroyed... even the crane itself. Materials in the kit include a DVD program, five motivational posters, and 30 employee booklets. The posters in the kit remind employees of the importance of rigging safety. The DVD program and the employee booklets include information on recent changes in the OSHA regulation, qualified/competent riggers and signalers, personal protective equipment, equipment inspection, hazard assessment, slings and hitches, hand signals, load angles, working around power lines, and more. The DVD program in the kit comes with a comprehensive leader's guide, reproducible scheduling & attendance form, employee quiz, training certificate and training log.
