Assessment:

The course will be based on theoretical sessions, written assessment, equipment demonstrations and practical exercises

Entry Requirements:

WorkSafe considers that to assist in ensuring safety at the workplace, and to comply with Regulation 6.20(2)(d) of the Occupational Safety and Health Regulations 1996 requirements, applicants for a High Risk Work Licence must have sufficient knowledge of the English language to communicate orally with other workers and where appropriate be able to read and understand:
• Safety signs at workplaces.
• Operator manuals in the case of plant such as, for example, fork-lift trucks, work platforms and cranes
• Load charts and/or compliance plates in the case of plant as exampled above.
• Assembly instructions and drawings associated with rigging and scaffolding work.
• Job Safety Analyses (JSAs) .
In undertaking the written component of the Assessment Instrument WorkSafe does not permit, under any circumstances, an interpreter to be used and requires that applicants attempt the written examination in their own hand. Being able to write answers to the written questions is an essential means of demonstrating to the assessor that they can read the English language. However, when marking written assessments assessors can seek verbal clarification/enhancement of questions not fully answered.

WorkSafe also wishes to confirm that all written assessments for HRWLs must be 'closed book' in that applicants must not have access to any information.
