High Risk Work Licence

High risk work license training

Obtaining a High-risk work license (HRWL) will open up numerous job opportunities for you in Perth, Brisbane, and Darwin and across Australia. A high-risk license is a nationally recognised license that allows individuals to conduct work, which is deemed “high risk”. This includes rigging, scaffolding, working with cranes, forklifts and EWP’s. In each state or territory, licenses are issued by Work-Safe, or their derivative, and are aligned to specific units of competency of training. Attaining an appropriated license will depend on the capability of your chosen training institute to deliver suitable and necessary training.

That’s why you should choose SMS Contracting, as a nationally recognised training institute with a proven record of accomplishment, any qualification or licensee you receive from us is recognised and respected around the country.

If you have a head for heights and want to undergo high-risk training in Perth then contact us at SMS. Our courses are thorough, incorporating both theoretical and practical training, meaning that when you become high-risk work licence qualified with us, you will have the ability and confidence, as well as the necessary qualification to carry out a wide range of high-risk work.

On completion of the course, you will receive a photographic licence, which is subject to identification checks and verification of age, as only candidates older than 18 can hold a HRWL. Once issued with a Notice of Assessment, you can perform that class of high-risk work until you receive your actual licence; this can take between four to six weeks. Your licence will only be valid for the categories of high-risk work endorsed on the card.

HRW licences are valid for five years in all states of Australia, starting on the date of issue of the first HRW licence class endorsed on the licence.

All training is carried out on a realistic, simulated construction site, with the same safety procedures and protocols you would expect to find on any other mining, industrial, construction, and oil and gas site.
