WHAT IS BASIC RIGGING?
Basic rigging involves preparation work for a job.
It can include the movement and set up of plant and equipment, preparation for the erection of precast concrete, set up and erection of some hoists and the installation of safety nets and screens securing loads. It also requires the ability to work safely at heights.
Intermediate rigging requires all the skills of basic rigging as well as being able to prepare concrete tilt up panels, conveyors, cranes, dredges, excavators and hoists not covered by basic rigging.
WHO NEEDS A RIGGERS LICENCE?
Anyone who is looking for work that requires rigging skills will need to have a license. The three classes of rigging courses are Basic, Intermediate and Advanced and each has a description of the tasks to be performed at that level.
The level of license required will depend on the individual based on the type of work involved or the level of skill they would like to achieve.
HOW LONG DOES THE BASIC RIGGING LICENCE LAST?
A riggers license will need to be renewed every 5 years. There is a requirement to pay a WorkSafe fee when renewing a high risk work licence.
