Local 597 offers rigging and signaling courses to our members. Signal Person Safety Training is required by OSHA for an individual to direct a crane. The UA certified rigger course will give the Journeyman a better understanding of the forces at work when a lift is being made. The Signal Person Safety Training is included in the UA rigging class. A member must re-certify every four years. If you have questions regarding the rigging program at Local 597, please contact Mike Galfano at the training center or via e-mail at email@example.com.
