Dogging operations cover work in conjunction with cranes using slinging techniques, selection and inspection of lifting gear and directing the crane operator in the movement of loads. Dogman training is designed to give students the skills and knowledge in selecting suitable lifting materials when moving loads.
There are two main aspects involved in dogging. The first involves moving a load using slinging techniques and the second involves the directing of a hoist or crane operator when the load is out of the operator’s full view. The detailed course will help you to plan a job, select and inspect the appropriate equipment, prepare the site and equipment, perform the task and finally to complete the task in a safe manner and document any issues if necessary.
