Closing Monday 30 August 2021.   

The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) for the TLI Crane High Risk Work Licence Project has considered all stakeholder feedback and revised nine draft Units of Competency.

At the request of Safe Work Australia, the units have been aligned to existing requirements for high-risk work licences for crane operators as set out in Schedule 4 of the model WHS Regulations.

Statements in the units relating to a dogging license and current industry experience as a requirement for entry have been removed.

In all nine units the following statement has been removed:

A person undertaking this unit must hold a current National HRWL to perform dogging or a certification for a specific VET course for HRWL to perform dogging.

In the 100 tonne and open class of cranes the following statement was also removed:

A person undertaking this unit must hold a current National HRWL to operate a Slewing Mobile crane (up to 60 Tonnes), and current industry experience operating a slewing mobile crane of between 20t and up to 60t competently for at least 2 years.

Feedback is invited on the final draft material, to be submitted by close of business Monday 30 August 2021.

Please contact us at vet@qta.com.au if you are interested in providing your feedback to us on the above project and training materials to ensure the voice of Queensland industry is heard.
