Important Information Concerning the A40 Slinger/Signaller Category
With effect from January 19th 2015 this category has been amended to add endorsements against a range of lifting equipment types to cover the increased use of slingers for a wider variety of lifting operations.
The endorsements are:
A – All Types – all duties
B – All Types – static duties

The number of learning outcomes have increased and these include key requirements for marshalling of plant, controlling loads during pick-and-carry duties and knowledge of when additional skills for particular lifting operations are required.
Emerson Training Services can offer training and testing on endorsements A and B with 3, 4 and 5 days courses dependant on candidates previous experience.
