Rigging Inspection, Testing, and Certification on Vancouver Island

Test Right Rigging Ltd is the rigging company to call for rigging inspection, testing, and certification on Vancouver Island, including Victoria, Duncan, Chemainus, Ladysmith, Nanaimo, Parksville, Courtenay and Campbell River.


We proof-test and certify rigging devices of all kinds.

We work with and in accordance to the Canadian WCB Standards, as well as being in compliance with the ANSI and ASME Standards of North America.


Various schooling and years of experience, combined with volumes of information accumulated to date, assist us in cross-referencing and defining each individual piece.


The product is then put through various physical tests in order to comply to the set standard for said piece.


Upon completion of all the practical tests a printed copy of certification is released.


We generally do Non-Destructive Testing, but are happy to oblige with the occasional Destructive Test, backed up with Digital Printout for exact information.


We also offer Mobile Testing which is convenient and cost effective in large quantities.

We have 2 setups for this service, 120,000 lb. bench and 1,000,000 lb. bench.

  • Mobile benches with digital print out up to 1M lb
