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.
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.
This unit specifies the outcomes required to 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.
This unit covers the scope of work to demonstrate competency in the application of slinging techniques, selection and inspection of lifting gear and/or the directing of the crane/ operator in the movement of the load.
