This course covers the skills and knowledge required to safely perform slinging techniques, including the selection and inspection of lifting gear and/or the directing of the crane operator in the movement of the load when the load is out of view of the crane/operator for licensing purposes.
Dogging work is:
- The application of slinging techniques including the selection and inspection of lifting gear to safely sling a load
- The directing of a plant operator in the movement of a load when the load is out of the operator’s view
Slinging techniques means using judgement in relation to the suitability of lifting gear and the method of slinging, by considering the nature of the load, its mass and its centre of gravity.
Assessment for High Risk Work (HRW) licences is undertaken by an accredited assessor approved by Workplace Health and Safety Queensland.
