What is Dogging and Rigging?

Rigging work involves the use of mechanical load shifting equipment to move, place or secure a load. Using plant, equipment or members of a building or structures, riggers ensure the stability of those members. Riggers are also involved the setting up or dismantling of cranes or hoists.

Dogman often assist crane operators when it’s difficult or impossible for the operator to view their load. By using whistles, radios and signals, doggers can help operators to safely and securely manoeuvre their loads.
