Frequently Asked Questions
Riggers are there to handle the safe movement of materials and equipment around a worksite. A certified rigger assembles and installs rigging gear, such as cables, ropes, pulleys and winches, to lift, lower, move and position equipment, structural steel and other heavy objects.
A rigger in Australia can expect to earn at an average hourly rate in the mid to high thirties. Though this pay rate will be based on experience and most workers will find that their first jobs as riggers are somewhere below that. According to the Victorian Skills Gateway the average pay for a Construction Rigger is $104,954 per annum.
At MultiSkills Training, the licence to perform rigging basic level costs $1,290.00.
To become a rigger, an individual must undertake accredited training and attain a licence to perform high risk work from a registered training provider.

The five-day course including a theory and practical assessment will see you certified to take on basic rigging work safely in a range of settings.
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 a HRW Licence to undertake their work.
