Systems & Processes for Rigger

The path towards better systems and processes in your Rigger role starts with mapping out your most important business processes. Being able to see your business processes laid out visually helps you to collaborate with your team on how to improve and grow. By repeating this collaboration process, you’ll develop a culture of continuous improvement that leads to a growing business and streamlined systems and processes that increase customer & staff experience.

To help you start mapping out your processes, we’ve developed a sample flow for a Rigger Workflow Map that you can use with your team to start clarifying your processes and then run Business Experiments so you can build a better business.

Workflow Map For A Rigger

1. Initial consultation: Meet with clients to understand their specific needs and requirements for rigging services in the construction industry.
2. Site assessment: Visit the construction site to assess the layout, conditions, and any potential challenges that may affect the rigging process.
3. Planning and design: Develop a comprehensive rigging plan, including equipment selection, load calculations, and safety measures, to ensure efficient and safe operations.
4. Equipment procurement: Source and acquire the necessary rigging equipment, such as cranes, hoists, slings, and shackles, based on the project requirements.
5. Rigging setup: Set up the rigging equipment at the construction site, ensuring proper installation, alignment, and safety measures are in place.
6. Load preparation: Prepare the loads to be lifted or moved, ensuring they are properly secured, balanced, and labeled for easy identification.
7. Rigging operations: Execute the rigging plan, including lifting, moving, and positioning loads using the appropriate equipment and techniques, while adhering to safety protocols.
8. Load transfer: Safely transfer the loads from the rigging equipment to their designated locations, such as rooftops, high-rise floors, or specific construction areas.
9. Rigging dismantling: Carefully dismantle and remove the rigging equipment from the construction site, ensuring proper storage and maintenance for future use.
10. Post-project evaluation: Conduct a thorough evaluation of the rigging operations, identifying any areas for improvement, and implementing necessary changes to enhance future service/product delivery
