In the dynamic landscape of construction and industrial sites, safety remains the utmost priority.
Every operation, every lift, and every movement of heavy loads demands precision and expertise. This is where the significance of Slinger/Signaller training comes into play. Understanding its vital role in ensuring site safety is paramount, especially in compliance with UK law such as LOLER (1998) and Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) BS7121.
Under the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER), employers and those responsible for lifting operations are mandated to ensure that lifting equipment is used safely and maintained appropriately. LOLER covers a wide array of lifting equipment, including cranes, hoists, as well as lifting and slinging operations.
BS7121 complements LOLER by providing practical guidance on the safe use of cranes, including the role and responsibilities of personnel involved in lifting operations. It specifically outlines requirements for slinger/signaller training, in addition to other lifting roles, emphasising the need for competent personnel to oversee and communicate during lifting operations.
Slinger/signallers play a pivotal role in ensuring the safe execution of lifting operations. Their responsibilities include:
RCSC Training understands the indispensable nature of competent slinger/signallers in maintaining a safe working environment. Our comprehensive training programmes encompass both theoretical knowledge and practical skills required for effective slinging and signalling operations.
In conclusion, Slinger/Signaller Training isn’t just about meeting legal requirements; it’s a cornerstone of site safety.
RCSC Training remains committed to delivering high-quality training programmes that empower individuals to become competent, safety-conscious professionals in the field of lifting operations. With the right training and adherence to regulations, we collectively move towards a safer working environment across the UK’s construction and industrial sectors.
