SGS Safety offered rigging inspection training this week which was presented by Industrial Training International, Inc. There were attendees selected from each Maintenance RA [Repair Area], the Training organization and Safety. The completion of the combination classroom and hands-on field training is a 24 hour technical training that will result (upon successful completion / testing), in attendees receiving a designation of "Certified Rigging Inspector". We are already receiving positive feedback from attendees on the quality of the information being shared. The follow-on plan is to have additional rigging inspection training at a less intense level for other rigging.
