Construction sites rely on people working together in teams. Crane operators rely on those on the ground around them to provide directions, however, the only way a crane operator can understand those directions is if everyone is talking the same language. On a construction site, verbal communication can be difficult, so a special set of signals has been created that operators and those designed as signal persons learn. In today’s workplace, riggers and signal-persons need to trained and they must be able to prove they are competent before they can work in those areas. To be OSHA compliant, riggers and signal-persons need to be certified as competent, this may include training followed by an assessment of a person’s skills and knowledge.
