Construction Courses


One of the most crucial positions on a construction site is that of the slinger signaller. A slinger signaller must be able to assist lifting teams by giving safety instructions and overseeing lifts. Working alongside the lifting crews to provide the crane with operator’s safe instruction and supervision demand expertise, diligence, and attention. Their primary duty is to safeguard the operators’ safety and any other employees or site visitors who may be in danger.

Introduction in Brief:

The BS7121 code of practice for the safe use of cranes specifies the standard hand signals that Slinger Signallers in the UK employ. The Health and Safety (Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996 also include several signals. Although some of these signals are similar, the bulk would be employed for plant and vehicle marshalling rather than as a slinger signaller, according to the rule. The signals must be exact, simple to create, and simple to comprehend.

Other times, bad weather, such as dense fog or relentless rain, may make hand signals unusable. Batons and two-way radios would be more perfect substitutes. Slinger Signallers that operate with tower cranes, where line of sight is often lost, frequently employ radios. If a Slinger Signaller determines that the situation is too risky for them to continue working, they have the right to suspend operations.
