Work gets done most efficiently if workers are divided into crews with a common purpose. When a crew is formed to tackle a particular job, one person is appointed the leader. This person is usually an experienced craft worker who has demonstrated leadership qualities. To become an effective leader, it helps if a trainee has natural leadership qualities - but there are specific job skills that each craft worker must learn in order to do the job well. ABC offers training to teach the skills needed to be an effective leader, including the ability to communicate effectively, provide direction to a crew, and effectively plan and schedule the work of a crew.
A Rigger and Signal Person must be used for hoisting activity for assembly assembly and disassembly work; they must also be used anytime workers are within the fall zone and hooking, unhooking, guiding a load, or completing the initial connection of a load to component structure.
A Signal Person is required when the operator does not have full view of the point of operation, the operator's view is obstructed in the direction that the equipment is moving, the operator or the person handling the load feels that a signal person is needed, and/or anytime there are site-specific safety concerns.
