CPCCLDG3001 Licence to Perform Dogging

What is Dogging?

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


Dogging work involves exercising judgement (making decisions) when:

  • Selecting appropriate slinging methods and lifting gear by:
    • Considering load size and shape
    • Determining load weight (its mass) and centre of gravity, and
  • Inspecting lifting gear like chains, slings, ropes, cables and hooks used to attach loads to plant to ensure it is not defective.


Dogging work also includes:

  • Directing a plant operator in the movement of a load when the load is out of the plant operator's view by communicating with the plant operator using hand signals, whistles or two-way radios.


Who needs a Dogman Licence? (Dogging Ticket)

Everyone who is engaging in some sort of dogging work is required to have a dogman ticket (DG).

Slinging a load requires more than just hooking up the relevant chains or cables. To safely sling a load, it requires an understanding of the suitability of the lifting gear, as well as what method of slinging is required. Further consideration of the nature of the load, such as its mass and center of gravity, is also a factor. The Dogman course teaches you the basics to get the load moved safely.


When are you required to do a Dogman course?

Before you undertake any dogman activities, such as slinging loads or directly hoist or crane operators, you need a High Risk Dogging Licence (DG). In general, a person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) must ensure that people engaged in slinging loads have received sufficient training, instruction and information to correctly follow the specific procedures without exercising judgement.
