Do you need to hire a dogman?

On any construction site one of the most important concerns for any site manager will be safety. He must make sure that all the staff on site are properly qualified for the tasks they are undertaking. Everyone undertaking dogging, rigging or any other task for which a license is needed must be properly certified.
