This fifth edition of the Handbook of Rigging contains a new section covering the safe operation of equipment and rigging systems and places emphasis on proper training and on the legal obligation of rigging contractors to comply with safety and health requirements, as set forth in OSHA 1926 and ANSI/ASTM safe operation standards for lifting and hoisting equipment.

The information on rigging equipment, systems, and devices provides the basis for developing instructional materials used in training personnel engaged in rigging operations.

  • Brand-new section covering the safe operation of equipment and rigging systems
  • Up-to-date information on EPA and OSHA regulations governing the use of rigging equipment
  • Directory of associations that publish research on safe rigging
  • Bibliography of references that cover related subjects concerning rigging
