Elevated Work Platform operation is classified as high risk work and therefore legislation requires workers to be assessed for competency.
This course is delivered by experienced trainers and assessed by SafeWork NSW approved assessors.
Training is delivered face to face including both theory and assessments.
This course is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and ability to safely operate an elevating platform over 11 metres according to SafeWork NSW standards.
To safely and legally operate an a boom-type elevating work platform (boom length 11 metres or more) in a NSW workplace you must:
– be licensed and competent to operate
– follow safe operating procedures including following the traffic management rules at your workplace.
A high risk work licence in the class of CN (non-slewing crane) is required for the operation of a non-slewing telehandler with a lifting capacity rating exceeding 3 tonnes when it is fitted with a boom or jib and hook block.
Where the telehandler is fitted with attachments such as a bucket or forks the PCBU has a duty of care in terms of ensuring workers have appropriate training in the operation of the plant, however a CN licence is not required.
Where the plant is fitted with a personnel box that can be extended 11m or more the operator requires an Elevated Work Platform (EWP) high risk work licence.
This qualification does not cover you for any of the under 11 metre machines, a separate ticket(s) will be required.
