Despite the high level of modernisation, there is still a lot of manual work to be done in technical and industrial workplaces, especially when it comes to transporting loads with lifting devices. The slinger and the crane operator make up a team that carries out the load transport. The behaviour of the slinger is very important. In accordance with BGR 500 the employer can only order someone to do this work if they have been properly instructed how to do the job. Participants learn the crane transport procedure, safe assessment of the danger zone, the choice of the right lifting tackle (sling) and its proper use in accordance with DGUV-I 209-013. Employers are responsible for only using trained crane operators in their operations. Participants learn how they can avoid accidents when operating cranes by prudent action. The right choice of load handling equipment, secure attachment, lifting and depositing loads and the behaviour of different types of crane are taught in theory and practice in accordance with DGUV Principle 309-003.

Persons who have already successfully completed and Attachment of Loads course have the opportunity to refresh their theoretical knowledge and practical skills in order to receive new certification.
