What Is Dogging?

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 covers all the requirements for obtaining a national High Risk Work Licence (Class DG) for Dogging operations. If your goal is to progress to Basic RiggingIntermediate Rigging or Advanced Rigging, this Dogging course is the first tier out of four, to reach your goal.

This licence will allow you to direct the load movements for cranes, selecting and inspecting lifting equipment such as chains, synthetic slings, shackles and lifting beams.
