Basic definition of a Rigger: 
The rigger assesses structures, materials and locations for rigging requirements and works closely with the crane operator/hoisting machine operator to determine the safest possible options.  Riggers decide how to attach things like pulleys and blocks onto overhead beams, ceilings or gin pole booms with bolts and clamps. They may need to build supporting structures or rigs using hand and power tools.  Riggers are in charge of calculating the load bearing capacity of structures for rigging cable and hardware and sometimes preparing sketches or blueprints of different rigging techniques. The rigger is usually in charge of arranging the delivery of materials and equipment, and the returning of items when they are no longer needed.
