  15. Hi there

    I’m interested in becoming a banksman slinger how does construction work for women,what do I need to do first

  16. I have worked in construction for over twenty years ,
    I have put my hand to formwork , sitefitting/erecting,
    Carpentry/ brickwork
    But I decided to becom a slinger .
    I have Noticed in the past five years a massive surge of so called slingers / supervisors and app’s who have no clue in basic lifting techniques, lifting accessory’s and apparatus;
    I have seen one fatality and seen countless near misses ,
    I would strongly advise anyone wishing to become a slinger to gain a minimum of two years experience on site.

    Four days in a training center doesn’t compensate for hands on experience.

  17. I am wanting to change my career from a factory job to a slinger could you email me info about how i do this

  18. Passed my cscs and just passed my cpcs slinger signaller course !

    Just looking for a job now but there mostly saying they need experience/ references

    Is there agencies what can help me with this? I’m in Milton Keynes / Northampton area

    Thanks Ryan

  21. Hi, interested in a career change and becoming a slinger/banksman. No prior experience. Please can you advise on course costs and employment prospects with no site experience? Thanks.

  22. I have a green cscs card and want to become a banksman slinger what course do i need and whats the diffirence between cscs and cpcs

  23. I am already working as a banksman at a very busy recycling centre, but I am not required to do any slinging. I love the job but my current employer doesn’t seem to offer any further training or enhancements and the pay is pretty low.
    I am very interested in taking this course to enhance my career. I have never done a CITB health and environmental course.

  24. Hello,
    I’m planning on getting my cpcs card, but am concerned that without experience, I’ll have a hard time getting a job.

    What would you suggest?

    Kind regards,
    Seth Holland
