High Risk Work Certification

Graham Marshall - Wednesday, August 01, 2012

There are important changes to high risk work certificates being issued in Western Australia

High risk work was previously covered by a ‘Certificate of Competency’ issued by WorkSafe.

That certificate is now being replaced by a ‘High Risk Work Licence’ under the National Licensing Standard.

Further information about the required licence conversions, including the relevant forms, can be accessed via the WorkSafe website.

To assist in locating key information, Resources Safety has developed a series of internet  quicklinks on the website.

The Quicklinks page provides a single entry point for the following types of information:

+   Information for people working on mine sites;
+   Licensed companies and businesses;
+   Licensed individuals;
+   Unlicensed companies;
+   Information for homeowners; and
+   Regulatory amendments.

The miscellaneous amendments to Dangerous Goods Safety regulations were gazetted on 1 April 2012.

These form the first phase of a comprehensive regulatory reform program.

The other reforms will come into effect progressively through 2012.
