NPORS Slinger Signaler
National Plant Operators Registration Scheme NPORS Slinger Signaler
NPORS Slinger Signaler is a qualification which is recognised by the HSE. It shows that an organisation has NPORS trained instructors who are fully competent to therefore train, test and certify operators. The main aim of NPORS is to grant NPORS accredited training providers the ability to meet the needs of the company so that they can provide satisfactory personnel.
Companies may not have the facilities for on-site training. In this case an instructor would visit a site to deliver training. 3B Training distribute enquiries to a specialists company who will therefore conduct the training at their base. The qualification is an alternative to the CPCS scheme.
The aim of the Slinger Signaler Course is to provide candidates with the basic knowledge and practical skills involved in slinging loads and guiding cranes to the NPORS standard.
The course duration varies depending on either the experience of the attendee or if they are attending a refresher or not. The course covers a basic introduction into health and safety and current legislation; as well as a range of techniques on how to operate the machine.
Novices with no experience all the way up to experienced workers attend the training.
For those who are experienced they would attend an EWA (experienced worker assessment). Delegates who complete the course will be viable for an NPORS card. The card is valid for either 3 or 5 years.
A refresher course must be taken regularly; this is to make sure that the operator is working to the correct standard and to correct any bad habits the operator may have picked up over the cards duration.
