NPORS Slinger Signaller Training Course N402

Learn how to safely Sling and Signal in accordance with LOLER and BS 7121

Slinger and Signaller’s play a crucial role within the lifting industry. The role of the Slinger Signaller is to connect lifting accessories to the hook of lifting equipment (crane) and to provide clear instructions in the form of signals or verbal communication to the crane operator while guiding a travelling load from the lifting point to the landing point. Slinger Signallers are required to work in accordance with the relevant legislation and standards, including LOLER 1998 and BS 7121. 

Our NPORS Slinger Signaller training course (N402) is designed to provide the necessary knowledge and training qualifications to allow a person to safely Sling and Signal in compliance with the relevant legislation, best practice, and standards. 

The training course is available as a Plant and Safety Certified training course, or an NPORS Accredited training course. The NPORS training course reference is NPORS Slinger Signaller N402.

Our training courses meet the latest standards set by the Accrediting Bodies Association – Workplace Transport (ABA) and the National Plant Operator Registration Scheme (NPORS), who are advised by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
