Rigging encompasses all types of mechanical load shifting, such as transporting, positioning, securing, and setting up equipment, and includes setting up hoists and pulleys. The term rigger refers to someone who undertakes these tasks.

A dogger is skilled in the use of slinging techniques to safely sling a load.

Someone who is appropriately trained in dogging is known as a dogman or dogger, and they play an important role in construction, demolition, heavy vehicle industries, shipping, freight and more.

A dogger is the main person responsible for the correct selection and inspection of lifting gear to safely sling a load, meaning they carry a serious responsibility on site. Loads that are not correctly secured with slings, hooks and chains can become a major safety hazard

A High Risk Licence is required for this work.
