What to look for when recruiting a temp slinger

18% of fatal workplace accidents in 2018 involved a moving vehicle according to the Health and Safety Executive data - for this reason, the role of a slinger, also called a banksman signaller or a rigger banksman, who is there to direct the work of crane operators who have often an obstructed view, is of the utmost importance on a construction site.

When you’re looking to recruit a slinger, you need to ensure that they know the standard hand signals as described in the Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996 perfectly well.

If you’re looking to recruit a candidate with very limited experience of slinging, you may want to offer them a training course so that they can obtain their CPCS (A40) trained operator card. This kind of course typically costs between £775 and £1,200, and lasts 3 to 4 days.

Depending on your needs and the type of cranes that are used on your construction site, you may want them to follow a specialised training, for example for 360 Excavators, Telehandlers, Static cranes or Lorry loaders, or just follow a generalist training, for all types of machines.

A risky role requiring a lot of concentration and great communications skills, in all weather, you should check that your candidate has a real understanding of the specific risks associated with your construction site, and of the planned schedule of works.

You probably have a good idea of what you need a slinger to do for you. But to make things easy, we give you a job description to start from and a suggested budget. Typically slingers will perform the following duties:

  • Operating the crane safely
  • Using the crane for loading and unloading material (e.g., steel, concrete)
  • Assisting machine drivers, overseeing the movement of other cranes and vehicles on site

Typically, recruitment agencies will charge between £19.25 and £29.29 per hour for slingers. This includes what the candidate is paid, their National Insurance and holiday payments, as well as the agency margin. Your budget should take into account the experience of the secretary and their working location. For example, expect to pay more in London, where the Living Wage is £10.55 per hour.
