  5. Slewing Mobile Crane (up to 60 tonnes)

Slewing Mobile Crane (up to 60 tonnes)

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:

Upon successful completion of this course, you will meet all the criteria for obtaining a national High Risk Work Licence (Class C6) for slewing mobile cranes with a lifting capacity of up to 60 tonnes. This license will authorize you to operate various types of cranes within Australia, including mobile cranes (up to 60t), non-slewing cranes (such as telehandlers or Franna cranes), and vehicle loading cranes (such as Hiab’s and Palfinger’s).

Course Outcomes

This comprehensive course covers a wide array of essential skills and knowledge for operating a slewing mobile crane (21t up to 60t capacity). Participants will gain proficiency in the following areas:

1. Accurate recording and maintenance of information related to crane operations.
2. Communication techniques in the workplace, including whistles, hand signals, and the use of two-way radios.
3. Interpersonal communication skills to effectively engage with other site personnel.
4. Loading data into the crane computer (if fitted) and ensuring accurate reflection of the crane configuration.
5. Operational expertise in handling a slewing mobile crane (21t up to 60t capacity) for lifting and moving loads within the safe working rated capacity, in collaboration with other associated personnel.
6. Risk assessment and implementation of hazard control strategies, incorporating the hierarchy of control, with specific attention to risks associated with overhead powerlines/electrical cables, wind, erection, pack up, and crane stability.
7. Use and interpretation of crane manufacturer’s specifications and data, including load charts, for configuring the crane based on the load.
8. Verifying problems and equipment faults, and demonstrating appropriate response procedures.
9. Application of appropriate mathematical procedures for estimating and measuring loads.
10. Familiarity with Commonwealth, State, or Territory OH&S legislation, standards, and codes of practice relevant to the specific crane class.
11. Literacy skills to read and comprehend manufacturer’s instructions, procedures, and safety signs.
12. Understanding mobile slewing crane characteristics and capabilities to configure the crane for a range of loads.
13. Mobile slewing crane operating techniques.
14. Awareness of the hierarchy of hazard identification and control.
15. Adherence to organizational and workplace standards, requirements, policies, and procedures for conducting crane operations.
16. Knowledge of procedures for recording, reporting, and maintaining workplace records and information.
17. Understanding rated capacity and working load limits, including the use of crane load charts.
18. Addressing typical routine problems encountered in the process and with equipment, and making necessary adjustments for correction.

Course Outcomes:

  • Requirements for HRW Licence.
  • OH&S Legislation (Acts, Regulations and Duty of Care)
  • Application of Australian Standards and National Standards.
  • Selecting Lifting Equipment
  • Inspecting Lifting Equipment (i.e. prior to use)
  • Deciding on Slinging Methods
  • Directing Crane Operators (when loads are out of view)
