Why complete this Non-Slewing Mobile Crane Licence Course?

 

Section 21 of the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 (Vic.) requires that employers provide an adequate level of information, instruction, training and supervision to employees to enable them to work safely. Part 3.6 and Schedule 3 of the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2017 (Vic.) outline the requirement to hold a High Risk Work Licence if conducting dogging work, which is defined as one or both of the following:

  • the application of slinging techniques, including the selection or inspection of lifting gear, to sling a load
  • the directing of a crane or hoist operator in the movement of a load when the load is out of the operator’s view

Further, slinging techniques are defined as “those slinging techniques that require the exercise of judgment in relation to the suitability and condition of lifting gear, and the method of slinging, by consideration of the nature of the load, its mass and its centre of gravity”.

If the work you do fits into the above categories, we strongly recommend completing a Non-Slewing Mobile Crane Licence Course.
