Application


This unit specifies the skills and knowledge required to safely operate a self-erecting tower crane.

Self-erecting cranes are common on small to medium-sized construction sites. They usually have a horizontal boom that folds out during erection and are usually operated by remote control rather than from a cabin. For licencing purposes, self-erecting tower cranes are a separate category to other types of tower crane.

Completion of the general construction induction training program, specified in the Safe Work Australia model Code of Practice: Construction Work, is required by anyone carrying out construction work. Achievement of CPCCWHS1001 - Prepare to work safely in the construction industry meets this requirement.

Competence in this unit does not in itself result in a licence. A licence is obtained after competence is assessed under applicable Commonwealth, state or territory work health and safety (WHS) regulations.
