TLI Crane High Risk Work Licence

Project scope

This project is at the request of Safe Work Australia to align Units of Competency in the Transport and Logistics Training Package with WHS regulations related to High Risk Work Licences (HRWL) for crane operators.

 

The Transport and Logistics Industry Reference Committee has identified that nine of the 13 units updated in 2018 need to be revised and aligned to existing competency requirements for high-risk work licences as set out in Schedule 4 to the model WHS Regulations.

 

This review is aimed at ensuring the regulatory burden for individuals and businesses is proportionate and efficient, without reducing safety protections. The project will consider safety considerations and training needs carefully. Updated Training Package materials will ensure safety is paramount, in a manner that is consistent with the national regulatory framework.

 

The Transport and Logistics IRC will have oversight of this project, which will be facilitated by Australian Industry Standards (AIS) in consultation with industry stakeholders. A Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) has been formed for this project.

 

If you have any questions about this project, please contact the Industry Manager.

 

Deliverables

The following Units of Competency will be updated by 30 September 2021:

TLILIC0002 – Licence to operate a vehicle loading crane (capacity 10 metre tonnes and above)

TLILIC0008 – Licence to operate a non-slewing mobile crane (greater than 3 tonnes capacity)

FINAL DRAFT MATERIAL

 

On behalf of the Transport and Logistics Industry Reference Committee (IRC), its Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) has considered all stakeholder feedback and revised nine draft Units of Competency for the Crane High Risk Work Licence project.

 

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 closed Monday, 30 August 2021.

 

Feedback will be collated and discussed at the next TAC meeting.
