Do You Need A Dogman Ticket In Sunshine Coast?

Dogmen are workers who are trained in using a variety of equipment to move and handle loads of various weights and sizes. Their work is often dangerous with a number of hazards, from slips, trips and falls to contact with materials and workers.

In addition to slinging loads and moving heavy objects around, a Dogman may also be required effectively communicate with the crane operator via hand signals, radio or both during each lift to ensure the load is accurately moving and on the course, even when out of view of the crane operator.

To ensure that these activities are conducted efficiently and in compliance with relevant safety regulations, all personnel involved in lifting and transferring loads must hold a Dogman ticket.

Industry-leading courses coupled with some of the best trainers in the industry, HOST safety and training offer dogman courses that will give participants the skills and knowledge they need to work confidently and safely as a Dogman.

    Dogging Licence FAQs

    Dogging and rigging are both important roles in the construction and industrial industries, but they differ in their responsibilities and training requirements. Dogging involves the use of slinging techniques and equipment to safely lift and move loads, while rigging involves the assembly, installation, and disassembly of cranes, hoists, and other lifting equipment. Dogger work is typically considered a more entry-level position, while rigging requires additional knowledge and training.

    Dogging work is considered a high-risk occupation due to the potential for serious injury or death. This is why it is required that workers obtain a high-risk work licence and undergo dogger training to ensure that workers are competent and knowledgeable in the necessary safety procedures and working techniques.

    While a dogman qualification and knowledge can last forever, a dogman licence card will need renewal every five years. It is important to note that workers are unable to perform dogging activities without an up-to-date licence.

    At HOST Safety and Training, we offer courses for those who are looking to update their knowledge, maintain current safety standards and ensure they remain accredited as a Dogman. Contact us today to find out more about our dogman courses and training.

    Our licence to perform dogging course courses cost $1210 (no GST) per person. We also offer customised quotes for group or corporate bookings.

    Our dogging courses are delivered over five (5) days, with assessments delivered face-to-face at any of our facilities or onsite.

    Upon successful completion of a licence to perform dogging course and its units of competency, participants are awarded a High-Risk Work Licence, as well as a statement of attainment that allows participants to seek employment in the construction industry as a dogger.
