Competent people are a prerequisite for safe lifting.  Good training and a high level of competence already exist, but the requirements and the standards vary. 
Step Change is delighted to announce that standards for Lifting and Rigging are now complete and available for use, they can be found on the OPITO website at .

Co chairs for the Competence Workgroup, Alan Chesterman and Peter Brown have now written to all member companies advising them of this development and encouraging them to utilise the industry developed standards.

Other standards in this series are in progress of being completed, they include Rigger and Offshore Crane Operator, they are due to be issued and published later this year.
