Slinger signaller operator and what is involved in the CPCS operator training course to gain the competency card?

If you were to go onto any M.C.G (Major Contractor Group) site where there is any mechanical lifting going on, you will find that the machine/crane operator works in conjunction with a Slinger Signaller. He/she acts as the main person who by means of either two-way radios or pre-determined hand signals, guide loads safely around site. Amongst their duties he/she would check the “landing area” as safe to receive the load, also assess the weights of loads prior to lifting and ensure that the correct Slings or chains are used for the task. This person would be required to hold a CPCS competency card.
