The Importance of a Good Rigger on the Jobsite

July 15th, 2015

Riggers are important people on the heavy equipment job site. If you are working heavy construction, a good rigger can save your life.

Recently, I spoke to a gentlemen who told me a story about an accident he had on scaffolding. It wasn’t high off the ground, but he did step onto a plank that wasn’t secured properly and immediately was thrown into the scaffolding uprights. He hurt himself a little bit. No broken bones or serious injury, but it did bruise him fairly well.

His mistake: He didn’t inspect the scaffolding a fellow worker put together for him. If he had, he’d have seen his fellow worker’s error.

Rigger’s Save Lives

I don’t know if these workers were certified. They weren’t involved in the heavy equipment industry. They were painting a house. But on a heavy equipment jobsite, the rigger is the person who puts all the equipment together and inspects it for safety. They are usually an expert in tying knots, rigging hitches, and performing other tasks in lifting and securing heavy objects. That’s why they are so important.

Associated Training Services (ATS) offers a rigging certification course to train your riggers in all aspects of keeping your work team safe.

OSHA regulations require riggers to be certified. By enrolling in this course, you’ll learn how to be a good rigger and get your certification, which means you’ll be legal and qualified. There aren’t many schools that offer a rigging course. ATS is one of them.

Why Now is a Good Time to Start New Career Training

July 11th, 2015

In just a couple of days, Associated Training Services will begin a new session of our heavy equipment training. The good news is, you still have time to enroll.

If, by any chance, you can’t make the July 13, 2015 class date, we’ll have another one start on Monday, August 3, 2015, and then another one kicks off two weeks later. If you’re even thinking about starting a career as a truck driver or heavy equipment operator, then we’d encourage you to join one of these class dates.

Why Summer is Good for Heavy Equipment Training

The summer months are good for heavy equipment training for two major reasons:

  1. You get plenty of classroom time
  2. And when you are outside you’ll be working during the hottest months of the year, and if you can do that, the rest of it is a piece of cake

No joke. You get classroom time in heavy equipment school. That’s because we want to make sure you understand all about the equipment and good safety practices before we turn you loose to operate it. Our instructors are seasoned pros and leave no stone unturned in teaching you everything you need to know to be a good heavy equipment operator.

Plus, if you can operate the equipment in the hottest days of the year, then you can operate it any time.

Don’t Put Off What You Can Do Today

That’s not to say, of course, that winter isn’t a good time for training. If you are ready for a new career, then any time is good for training.

The sooner you start your heavy equipment career, the more money you’ll make in the long run. Why wait? If you’re ready, the best time is now.

5 Uses for a Backhoe

July 4th, 2015

One of the most versatile machines on any work site is the backhoe. If you look at it, it resembles a huge metal spider. But I’ve never met anyone who knew how to operate a backhoe who didn’t also enjoy operating one. Here are five ways you can use a backhoe to get the job done.

  1. Dig a Trench – Backhoes have a bucket on one end that is perfect for digging. You stick the teeth into the ground and dig up the dirt. You can maneuver your backhoe down a line to build a trench for piping.
  2. Uproot a Tree – If you’ve never seen anyone pull up a tree before with a backhoe, you’re missing a sweet treat for your eyes. It’s even more fun to be the one operating the backhoe.
  3. Grade a Road – There is a plow on the opposite end from the bucket. Just by pushing that plow along an even plane on a road, you can grade it, make it smooth, and put a smile on a lot of auto drivers’ faces.
  4. Push Dirt – Just about every worksite has a need for dirt to be pushed out of the way. After digging, the dirt usually piles up. Then you have to push it aside to carry on with the rest of the job. You can use your plow to push the dirt.
  5. Plow Snow – Backhoes are also good for plowing snow. Just take that plow and clear the roads.

What can you think of to do with a backhoe?

To achieve that goal we hire the highest quality instructors and use the highest quality training materials and equipment.

Integrity

There is more to integrity than simply telling the truth. We at Associated Training Services strive to be honest in business and in our personal lives. We believe integrity involves keeping your actions consistent with your words. People will notice what you do more than what you say, and we want to be known for our high commitment to moral principles. Therefore, we maintain a high level of integrity.

Pride

Pride is taking ownership in your achievements. From the top executives to our newest instructors, we take pride in our work and in the training we provide our students. We know that every student that graduates from our school is a reflection of our values and training philosophy. We’ve got many years of affecting the trucking and heavy equipment industries positively by training people to be the best at what they do.
