Course Information

By the end of the one-day course, operators will have learned their statutory duties under the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974, the significance of sling angle in relation to safe working loads, the importance of weight and centre of gravity for lifting tackle and signalling codes for slingers.

Slinging Fundamentals:

Identifying damaged parts
Inspection and maintenance procedures
Understanding colour-coding systems
Proper sling storage techniques
Safe and effective use of slings
Different methods of slinging
Using charts to determine proper lifting capacity
Optimal angles for lifting operations

Our Slinging and Lifting Training program provides operators with the necessary skills to safely and accurately sling loads during lifting operations.

During such operations, operators typically depend on signallers to guide them in the movement and positioning of loads. Our courses teach delegates how to both sling and signal crane loads effectively, ensuring that lifting is conducted safely and efficiently.
