Rigging & Signalperson Qualification
The law requires “materials must be rigged by a qualified rigger” (29 CFR 1926.1425)(Cal/OSHA Title 8, Sec 4999) and, “the employer of the signalperson must ensure that each signalperson meets the qualification requirement of this section” (29 CFR 1926.1428)(Cal/OSHA Title 8, Sec 1618.2).
