Rigging involves hooking or tying materials and equipment to chains, ropes, and cables for transported by cranes, backhoes and other construction equipment. OSHA requires that rigging work is done by a qualified rigger. Rigging safety is critical to ensure this material is secure and does not fall causing damage to people or property.
