High risk work licences need re-assessment

johnboy 8 October 2013

WorkSafe is banging the drum about the need for licence holders to keep their skills up to scratch:

ACT Work Safety Commissioner Mark McCabe is advising people who hold a high risk work licence under Work Health and Safety legislation that they must have and maintain the competencies the licence indicates they hold.

“WorkSafe ACT will take action if it determines that a high risk work licence-holder does not have the competence required to undertake the work for which they are licensed. High risk work, by its nature, can lead to serious accidents, if not fatalities,” said Mr McCabe.
