Course Overview

 

This unit specifies the outcomes required to operate a builder's hoist in which personnel, goods and/or materials may be hoisted, and which comprises a car, structure, machinery or other equipment associated with the hoist, and which may be a cantilever hoist, a tower hoist or a multiple winch operation. Included in this definition are situations where winches may be configured to operate as hoists for the transportation of personnel for licensing purposes.

This unit requires the operator to plan work, conduct routine checks, conduct hoist operations and shut down and secure a hoist.

This course, over 2 days, is based upon the National Standard for Licensing Persons Performing High Risk Work.

On successful completion of this course, participants will be able to apply for a High-Risk Work Hoist Personnel (HP) Licence. There are costs associated with applying for the licence. Please visit www.worksafe.qld.gov.au for current licence fees.

Course Structure:
Please note: Competence in a unit does not in itself result in a licence.

Once the trainer believes the participant has demonstrated theoretical and practical understanding of the chosen course (i.e ‘Unit of Competency’), this will be verified with a certificate or what’s known as a ‘Statement of Attainment’ from us, On the Job Training.

They then begin the process of obtaining a licence, via the relevant practical and theoretical assessments or ‘National Assessment Instruments’ (NAI). This is conducted by an assessor on behalf of Workplace Health & Safety Queensland. On successful completion of the mandated assessment, they will be issued with a ‘Candidate Assessment Summary’ (CAS) by On the Job Training.

Upon successful completion of the NAI as stated above, the Office of Industrial Relations Queensland will contact them with instructions on how to apply for the high risk work licence.
