This course is vital for anyone using plant machinery in order to sling different loads. By completing this course, delegates gain the ability and knowledge to work safely while onsite. The course will give the delegate the necessary understanding of the role of a Slinger/Signaller or “Slinger Banksman” as they are more commonly known.
The type of CPCS Slinger Signaller course the delegate requires, depends upon the type of machinery used in the slinging process.
