The occupation of Rigging refers to the lifting, moving and positioning of extremely large or heavy objects which are beyond the reasonable scope of manual handling and outside the reach of material handling equipment.

Due to the specialised and dangerous nature of the work involved the profession of Rigger requires extensive training both at a dedicated instructional centre and then through a period of consolidation in a workplace environment.

The complexity of many rigging operations necessitates the need for teams of riggers to work cohesively in order to successfully and safely complete the load movement activities.

Given the hazardous nature of operations, participants in rigging teams place significant trust in their colleagues.

This requires all Riggers to maintain a high level of knowledge and competency to ensure that operations are professionally and safely executed.
