As part of our Value-Added proposition, Holloway Houston provides
Rigging Safety” training seminars at NO COST to either existing or prospective
clients. We see
it as an investment in people’s knowledge and understanding, with a focus on risk management.
Our goal is to
provide you and your employees with a better understanding of how to properly select, inspect
and use rigging
gear. These training seminars are available at our facilities or yours, in English or Spanish.
A typical seminar (see class Agenda and 2016 schedule) covers
4-hours and each
attendee will receive the following items.
“More employees are injured in industry while
moving materials than while performing any other single function. In every day operations, they
handle, transport, and store materials. This can be done by hand, manually operated materials handling equipment, or power operated equipment.”
