Summary Since 1957 successive editions of the Handbook of Rigging for Construction and Industrial Operations have delivered proven solutions for erecting reliable rigs and scaffolds for plants and factories, loading docks, mines and ports, and construction and demolition sites. Complete with extensive coverage of relevant OSHA regulations plus the author's own expert advice on safe practices, this definitive guide shows you how to select and use: rigging tools--fiber and wire-strand rope, slings and hitches, end attachments and fittings, and blocks, sheaves, reeving, and drums-scaffolding and ladders--both manual and powered swinging and suspended scaffolds, wood and metal stationary scaffolds, specialized scaffolds, and portable ladders, rigging machinery--derricks and cranes, overhead hoists, personnel/material hoists, and helicopters, rigging accessories--jacks, rollers, and skids plus safety belts, lifelines, and nets.
