Rigging & Signaling Training

Many people are injured each year in crane construction accidents, and dozens of these are fatalities. Of the top four most common fatality accidents, number two is from the load dropping on workers and number four is from workers being struck by the boom, with over ninety percent of these rigging and signaling-related accidents being caused by human error. Paragon Safety Group offers Rigging and Signaling training as the key to preventing these incidents.

Offered in both English and Spanish, Paragon’s Rigging and Signaling course covers all topics required by OSHA for qualifying signal persons and riggers.
