Any worksite which has mechanical lifting taking place is required to have a Slinger Signaller – or Slinger Banksman, as they are also known – performing certain duties which increase the accuracy and safety of the job being performed. The Slinger Signaller is responsible for:
- Guiding loads using two-way radios or pre-determined hand signals.
- Determining the safety of the load landing area.
- Assessing the weights of loads prior to lifting.
- Ensuring that the correct slings or chains are used for particular tasks.
In addition, all our crane operators are also ALLMI-qualified Slinger Signallers, they are available to perform these duties when you have nobody available with the relevant knowledge and experience.
