FULL PRODUCTION TRAINS WITH RIGGING TEAM
As we gear up for a busy summer, the Full Production team has been brushing up on our training. Over the course of three days in February, we completed a course with our friends over at Rigging Team which covered many different aspects of rigging and working at height.
Rigging Team Managing Director Adam Searle ran us through important regulations such as PUWER (The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations) and LOLER (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations). We also covered topics such as distributing loads correctly on trusses, how to operate chain hoists, steel wire rope terminations and the use of personal protective equipment. We got plenty of practice using Rigging Team’s custom training facility, which includes a large steel structure where practical assessments take place.
As Full Production continues to grow, we are always on the lookout for opportunities to invest in our people. This training keeps us up to date with the most recent regulations and refreshes our knowledge in a complex and important area. It ensures our team feels as confident as possible working with potentially dangerous or heavy equipment, especially at height.
Full Production’s Director of Live Events and Touring Marc Thornton commented: “I can’t recommend enough the training run by Rigging Team. They delivered an engaging session that covered some crucial skills and knowledge. I have been rigging for over ten years but all these skills were picked up on the job – it’s great to complete a course which formalises that knowledge.”
