CPCCLDG3001 - Licence to perform dogging Courses

The purpose of this course is to provide the skills and knowledge required to safely perform dogging work

Dogging consists of the application of slinging techniques to move a load, including the selection and inspection of lifting gear, and the directing of a plant operator in the movement of a load when the load is out of sight of the operator. 

Dogging work is conducted in the construction industry and other industries where loads are lifted and moved using cranes or hoists. Students will develop the skills and knowledge to work in compliance with safe work method statements; check equipment service and maintenance records; perform compliant dogging activities; identify and control hazards; consult with crane operators to determine load weight and travel path; select and inspect appropriate lifting gear and apply slinging techniques; calculate working load limits; make temporary connections to loads using ropes; use radio communication, hand and whistle signals to guide crane operators; use specific bends and hitches when slinging and directing the movement of loads; inspect and store lifting equipment and gear.
