Unit Descriptor

  • Plan and prepare for lifting operations

  • Prepare for lifting

  • Move loads

If you are performing routine lifts with known load weights, the load has pre determined lifting points, application of a slinging technique is not required and the load remains within the crane operators view, then this course may be an alternative to a 5 day dogging course.

A Safe Operating Procedure (SOP) or similar must be developed and followed detailing load weight, inspection of slings/lifting gear, what type of lifting equipment is to be used and how the slings will be attached/applied to the load.

A Licenced Dogman is required if there is a decision needed to be made about load weight, inspection, selection, or application of the slings and slinging technique, and/or the crane operator requires direction in the movement of the load.


Application of the Unit

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to conduct lifting operations in the resources and infrastructure industries, including developing preliminary lifting plans, directing load movements, connecting load to movement devices and confirming load stability.


It applies to those working in operational roles. They generally work under supervision to undertake a prescribed range of functions involving known routines and procedures and take some responsibility for the quality of work outcomes.


Licensing, legislative and certification requirements may apply to this unit and can vary between states, territories and industry sectors. Users must check requirements with relevant body before applying the unit.
