  5. Communications — What communications are available for doggers to use, and when each of those communication methods are best used, as well as when to select and when to inspect communication methods and devices.
  6. Weights — What is your working load limit (WLL) and how to identify what the working load limit is, as well as various methods on determining the weight of a load, and the weights doggers need to know in order to pass their test (i.e. Water, Concrete, Steel)
  7. Equipment — What equipment is available to doggers, including lifting gear, taglines and P.P.E.
  8. Synthetic Slings — What different synthetic slings are available, and how to identify their WLL, as well as potential defects that will condemn them from use.
  9. Flexible Steel Wire Rope (FSWR) — How to identify the working load limit (WLL) of flexible steel wire rope (FSWR), the minimum allowable diameter as well as potential defects that will condemn them from use.

iii. Chains — How to identify the grade of a chain, how to identify the working load limit (WLL) of different grades of chains, what grades of chains are usable for lifting purposes, the minimum grade and diameter permittable for use for lifting purposes, as well as potential defects that will condemn them from use.

  1. Shackles — The difference between bow shackles and ‘D’ shackles, when to use a bow shackle, when to use a D shackle, how to identify the working load limit of a shackle, as well as potential defects that will condemn them from use.
  2. Eyebolts — The difference between collared and un-collared eyebolts, when to use collared eye-bolts, when it is acceptable to use un-collared eyebolts, the three things to think about before using eyebolts or lifting lugs.
  3. Attachments — Different attachments not previously mentioned that can be used for lifting purposes, such as spreader beams, brick cages etc.

vii. Other — Other equipment that dogman need to be familiar with including tagline information (what minimum size to use, what type of rope to use), a whistle and personal protection equipment:

  1. Hand Signals — The hand signals for slew left, slew right, hook up, hook down, boom up, boom down, extending the telescopic, retracting the telescopic and stopping the crane driver.
  2. Two-way Radios — How to use two-way radios, and how to effectively communicate with a crane operator using two-way radios.
  3. Verbal communication — Talking, when within hearing range of the crane operator, including active listening, effective body language and asking questions.

xii. Slinging techniques — How to effectively sling a number of different loads, what types of lifting equipment to use for those lifts, the difference between a choke hitch and a basket hitch and the effect this has on your working load limit (WLL).

xiii. Storing Equipment — How to safely store equipment including lifting gear, hazard controls, communication devices, protective gear, and what to consider when storing this equipment.

xiv. Maths — The math component of the Dogging Training Brisbane exam including the formulas for identifying the working load limit of a fibre rope, the working load limit of a flexible steel wire rope, the working load limit of chains, what safety factors, angle factors and reeve factors are, and how to assess the weight of a concrete pipe.
