High Risk Work Licence training for crane operators changing soon

Nine national crane operator training standards from the TLI Transport and Logistics Training Package that directly align to High-Risk Work Licences are being reviewed.

The aim of the review is to reflect the Work Health and Safety (WHS) Regulations while alleviating training barriers and increasing safety in beyond-visual operations. 

During Draft One, ISACNT consulted with members of the NT heavy lift sector to discuss the proposed changes, identify the impacts on the NT workforce and gather feedback surrounding suggestive solutions. 

The national outcomes from Draft One are reflected in Draft Two, which include removing the requirement to hold a Dogman (DG) Licence before undertaking training for either of the nine crane licences. However, it incorporates dogging slinging skills in the training instead.  

Also, the proposal to mandate evidence of 600 working hours in the last two years on a crane greater than 20 tonnes for C1 and CO classes has been removed. 

If you would like to know more, please email Alana Treagus or call (08) 7913 7522 by Monday 30 August.
