Whilst a Dogging Licence is not a pre-requesite to this course, it is required by any person performing dogging work, which includes where the operator of a vehicle loading crane slings their own loads. See below information from our regulations.
Part 3.6 and Schedule 3 of the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2017 (Vic.) outline the requirement to hold a High Risk Work Licence if conducting dogging work, which is defined as one or both of the following:
- The application of slinging techniques, including the selection or inspection of lifting gear, to sling a load
- The directing of a crane or hoist operator in the movement of a load when the load is out of the operator’s view
Further, slinging techniques are defined as: “those slinging techniques that require the exercise of judgment in relation to the suitability and condition of lifting gear, and the method of slinging, by consideration of the nature of the load, its mass and its centre of gravity”.
