Employer and Venue Endorsement to the National Rigging Certificate (NRC)

What is the Endorsement?

The Endorsement is your support and commitment to the goals of the NRC which are to increase safety in the industry, improve best practice, and recognise the competence of those working in rigging. Signing up to the Endorsement means that you are committed to only appointing contractors/suppliers carrying out rigging work who have qualified as a Rigger holding the NRC ID Skills Card for Level 2 Rigger or Level 3 Rigging Supervisor.

Make the Endorsement:

Example of the NRC ID Skills Card

We commit to the following statement:

'Our Venue / Company is committed to adopting the National Rigging Certificate (NRC). We will only appoint contractors/suppliers to carry out rigging work who have qualified as a Rigger holding the NRC ID Skills Card for Level 2 Rigger or Level 3 Rigging Supervisor. Trainees will be working in conjunction with someone holding the NRC Card.

We believe that this will support a culture of health and safety awareness, maintain best practice, and recognise the skills and knowledge of those who currently work in rigging.'

Enter your details for your endorsement to the NRC - you will be sent an acknowledgement. Upon approval, you will be sent a certificate that states your endorsement.

We will add your listing to this page providing we have your permission to do so. As such we would ask if you would please take a few minutes to upload an image of your company logo (300dpi CMYK jpeg format with a maximum size of 120mm wide). You can do this prior to submitting your endorsement at the end of this page.

The uploading of your logo may take a few minutes so please be patient.
