Conduct Lifting Operations - (Other Training)

If you are performing repetitive lifts with known lift points and weights, with sling techniques established, and the load does not go out of the crane operators’ sight, then this course may be a viable alternative to the Doggers course.

A Licensed Dogger is required if there is a decision required about load weight assessment, selection, inspection or application of slings, or the crane operator requires direction in the movement of the load.

Please call the office for more information or if you are unsure which you require.
