It is required by OSHA that a competent person perform inspections on rigging pieces
Rigging components are:
- Synthetic Nylon Straps
- Wire Rope
- Alloy Chain
Each of the rigging pieces listed above have criteria for removal from service and inspection. However, the most common types of rigging are wire rope and synthetic nylon straps. Both have very specific damage done to them, which would require they be removed from service.
