About this course
Slinger Signaller/Banksman training would be delivered to you on your own site; you would need to supply the lifting equipment and slings etc. Basic training must be conducted off the job, however during later stages of the training some work tasks may be able to be incorporated once candidates have reached an acceptable standard of safe operation. Every endeavour is taken to minimise the impact on normal working operations and ensure that training is relevant and industry specific.

- Legal duties
- Lifting tackle types and uses
- Understanding of equipment limitations
- Weight Estimation
- Care and maintenance of equipment
- Hooking up procedures
