Intermediate Scaffold

Workers who need to exercise judgement to sling loads or who direct crane movement from outside the crane operator’s full view (such as with whistle signals or radio)

Dogging consists of two main aspects:

  • The slinging techniques used for moving a load (including the selection and inspection of lifting equipment).
  • The directing of a hoist or crane operator who is moving a load, when the load is out of the operator’s view.

Simply put, someone who engages in dogging is called a Dogger.

Course Description:

This course focuses on the skills required to erect, alter, and dismantle scaffolding structures at the Intermediate level. It covers the use and operation of various advanced scaffolding techniques, including Cantilevered crane-loading platforms, Cantilevered and spurred scaffolds, Barrow ramps and sloping platforms, perimeter safety screens and shutters, Mast climbers, and tube and coupler scaffolds (including tube and coupler covered ways and gantries). Completion of this course meets licensing requirements.
