Purpose

Learners in the field of engineering require the skills, values and knowledge reflected in this unit standard.

The learning outcomes in this unit standard also contribute to the exit level outcomes required for the National Certificate in Mechanical Engineering Fitting (NQF level 2) and related qualifications.

Qualifying learners can sling loads safely before allowing load-moving equipment to remove / move the load. They will understand the importance of applying safe slinging techniques and how it is achieved. This will include a basic knowledge of weight determining, determining what load slinging equipment is required, lashing the load, attaching the load to the selected lifting equipment and signalling the lifting equipment operator.
