English to German translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Construction / Civil Engineering / cranes, personnel
English term or phrase:rigger
Operators shall be trained for the type of crane he is operating. Proof of his training must be available on site.
Correspondence from the crane supplier will not be accepted as proof of training. Project Manager approved
third party training institute certification will be accepted. The same applies to *riggers* / banksmen.
Contractors are required to use a flagman in the following instances:
• In highly congested areas; and
• Where it is not reasonably practicable to properly barricade the lifting area off and prevent people
• It remains the responsibility of the *rigger* to ensure that the lift zone is properly demarcated
Are rigger, banksman and flagman three words for the same thing/role? If not, where's the difference?
Explanation: Rigger, banksman und flagman sind an den vom Kran zu erledigenden Transportaufgaben beteiligt. Der Rigger führt den Kran von seiner Kanzel aus, der banksman ist der verantwortliche Vorarbeiter und der flagman ist die Aufsichtsperson, die unten am Kran dafür sorgen muss, dass niemand von den schwebenden Lasten gefährdet wird.
Explanation: Today, a rigger is a person or company which specializes in the lifting and or moving of extremely large and/or heavy objects.
Riggers tend to be highly specialized to moving jobs that cannot be accomplished by ordinary means and use equipment expressly designed for moving and lifting objects weighing hundreds of thousands or even millions of pounds in places where ordinary material handling equipment cannot go. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rigger_(modern_usage)
