Don’t risk non-compliance – check high risk licences

Are all your employees’ High Risk Work Licences accurate and current? Whether you are an employer or a licence holder, WorkSafe recommends regularly checking licences to ensure they are valid and that all classes have been added.

Checking tickets/certificates of attainment for individual high-risk courses is not sufficient – employers should always sight a current High Risk Work Licence.

High Risk Work Licences expire every 5 years.  Employees must not carry out high risk work until their licence has been renewed. It is important to note that adding a new class of high-risk work to a licence does not change its expiry date.

The Worksafe WA website has a search facility so that employers can check the status of employees’ High Risk Work Licences – click here
