Course Content of the Slinger Signaller
The Slinger course will provide candidates with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills involved in working as a Slinger/Signaller. The course covers an introduction to health and safety and current legislation; as well as a range of techniques on how to locate, identify and explain different types of lifting equipment and accessories.
Delegates must regularly take a refresher course; 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 throughout the duration of the card.
