Frequently Asked Questions

What is a dogman ticket?

A dogman ticket is a Worksafe licence to perform high risk work. It’s a certification that a worker must legally hold to undertake dogging work on a jobsite. Essential to a wide variety of industrial, civil, mining, gas and construction projects, dogmen handle the manoeuvring and slinging of loads including tools, materials and equipment.

How much is a dogman ticket?

Getting a dogman ticket requires both theory and practical training and assessment. At MultiSkills Training, you can undertake training and get assessed for your dogman licence for $1280. MultiSkills Training also offer package deals which may reduce the cost if you undertake additional courses.

What is the difference between a dogman and a rigger?

The work of dogmen and riggers will often look similar, but there are tasks and responsibilities that a rigger can take on that dogmen can’t. Where a dogman can select and inspect lifting gear, sling loads, and direct a crane or hoist operator in the movement of loads; a licenced rigger can move plant and equipment, erect steel and materials hoists, install static lines and safety nets, and erect a variety personnel platforms, safety nets and static lines. Important to note though, both dogmen and riggers need to have an HRW Licence to undertake their work.

What can a dogman lift?

WorkSafe Victoria describes dogging and dogmen as: “Workers who need to exercise judgement to sling loads or who direct crane movement from outside the crane operator’s full view (such as with whistle signals or radio).”For more information on dogman work in Victoria, get in contact with MultiSkills Training today.
