As part of our Value-Added proposition, Holloway provides “Fundamentals of 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 the industry while moving materials than while performing any other single function. In everyday operations, they handle, transport, and store materials. This can be done by hand, manually operated materials handling equipment, or power operated equipment.”
