Description: Rigging loads for lifting requires the use of various hardware items. Knowing how to correctly select, inspect, and assemble of each of these items is critical to a safe lift. To effectively use ropes in a work setting requires that you become familiar with several types of ropes, knots, bends, and hitches. The following list of lines and competencies was generated with the goal of creating an entry-level trades training resource, while still offering the flexibility for lines to be used as stand-alone books. Line C – Tools and Equipment. C-1 Describe Common Hand Tools and Their Uses, C-2 Describe Common Power Tools and Their Uses, C-3 Describe Rigging and Hoisting Equipment, C-4 Describe Ladders and Platforms. Special thanks to CAPER-BC (https://caperbc.ca/) for creating the audio recording for each Competency.
