Dogging involves the various slinging techniques used for moving a load around a worksite. As a dogger, you’ll be responsible for directing the hoist or crane operator when the load is out of their view. Normally, this is undertaken through the use of whistles, signals or radios. To legally work as a dogger, you’ll need your dogman licence.

At On The Job Training, we provide comprehensive training and assessments to help you obtain your dogman ticket. If you’ve already earned your dogging licence, you may want to consider undertaking rigger training. On The Job Training offers rigging certification at basic, advanced and intermediate levels.

What You Need to Know About High Risk Work Licences

In Australia, all dogman work qualifies as high-risk work. To legally undertake high-risk work, you’ll need your High Risk Work Licence. Once you achieve competency for a dogging or rigging unit, you’ll be able to make an application for High Risk Licence classes. Please note that High Risk Licenses are issued by the regulatory body in the State or Territory in which the high risk licence was gained.
