Is EWP high risk?

Boom Lifts with a boom length over 11m require a WP High Risk Work Licence.

 

Other EWP such as Scissor Lifts, Vertical Lifts and Boom Lifts under 11m do not require a WP High Risk Work Licence.

 

However training for the safe use of this equipment is required as part of the risk management responsibilities under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011.

 

Our Nationally Recognised courses for Work Safely at Heights + Operate EWP provide the necessary training to allow you to safely operate Scissor Lifts, Vertical Lifts and Boom Lifts under 11m.

Can I operate a Scissor Lift with a WP Licence

Because a Scissor Lift is not a boom type EWP, you do not need a WP High Risk Work Licence to operate it.

There is, however, a duty of care to ensure training, instruction and safe systems of work have been provided to the operator of any plant, under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011.

HiReach Training's Work Safely at Heights + Operate EWP course covers Scissor Lifts, Vertical Lifts and Boom Lifts under 11m, and will provide the necessary training to allow you to safely operate this equipment.

Is a telehandler / Manitou a High Risk Licence

The licencing requirements for a telehandler differ based on the capacity and attachments:

  • a non-slewing telehandler with a lifting capacity greater than 3 tonne and fitted with a boom or jib and hook block requires a CN High Risk Work Licence.

  • a slewing or non-slewing telehandler fitted with a personnel box / work platform that extends 11m or more requires a WP High Risk Work Licence

  • a slewing or non-slewing telehandler fitted with bucket or forks does not require a High Risk Work Licence, although there is a duty of care to ensure training, instruction and safe systems of work are provided to the operator. In this case RIIHAN309F - Conduct telescopic materials handler operations training is appropriate.
