Dogging work is the use of slinging techniques including the selection and inspection of lifting gear to safely sling a load, or the directing of a plant operator in the movement of a load when the load is out of the operator’s view. Slinging techniques is the exercising of judgement in relation to the suitability and condition of lifting gear and the method of slinging, by consideration of the nature of the load, its mass and its centre of gravity.
Rigging is defined as moving, placing or securing a load (such as plant, equipment or members of a building or structure) using mechanical load shifting equipment but does not include operation of the mechanical load shifting equipment, or erecting or dismantling cranes or hoists.
CERTIFICATE III IN SCAFFOLDING
Scaffolders plan, build and erect scaffolding and working platforms for construction projects, as well as building stands and tiered seating for public events such as concerts or sporting events. They inspect the area that requires scaffolding and make calculations to determine what kind of scaffolding is required, unload it, fit its tubing and braces together to form frameworks, and fix ladders, rails and other attachments to the scaffolding.
