What is Dogging?

Dogging covers work in conjunction with cranes such as the use of slinging techniques, selection and inspection of lifting gear and/or the directing of the crane/ operator in the movement of the loads. The dogging licence is the first step and is a prerequisite to obtaining the basic rigging licence.

Course Description

A high risk work licence for dogging (class DG) is required by anyone who applies slinging techniques to a load, which includes:

  • calculating the safe angle for sling or chain
  • selecting the type of sling or chain to be used
  • selecting the correct method to secure the load
  • selecting the safe method to lift or turn the load
  • checking the conditions of lifting gear for wear and tear.

A DG licence is also required by anyone directing the operator of a crane or hoist in the movement of a load when the load is out of the view of the operator.
