Manual/Bull Rigging Competency Guidebook Delivers Best Practices
Manual/bull rigging is a practice common in major petrochemical and nuclear projects which requires a lot of installation of heavy pipework and plant items. These environments are not always conducive to conventional cranes. As a result, SC&RA’s Crane & Rigging Safety Education and Training Committee recognized the need to determine competency levels and best practices for manual/bull rigging. A universal guidebook was created to provide guidelines for the categorization of manual/bull rigging activities according to risk and complexity with associated recommended competency levels for personnel conducting those activities. The Manual/Bull Rigging Competency Guidebook contains definitions, roles and responsibilities plus foundational information and operational characteristics to help assess and identify risk. This free member resource standardizes terminology, making interstate and international work easier and is a useful tool when bidding on projects.
