Telescopic Handler Manitou Telehandler Gold Card Training Courses provided by Cobra Training and Licensing Services, Sydney, NSW - RTO ID 91601.




Telehandler Gold Card Course Overview

In NSW, a High Risk Work (HRW) Licence is not required to operate a Telehandler with fork attachments regardless of lifting capacity*, however in accordance with the WHS Act and Regulations 2011 under PrimaryDuty of Care, a PCBU must provide information, training, instruction or supervision that is necessary to protect all persons from risks to their health and safety arising from work carried out as part of the conduct of the business or undertaking. A Gold Card provides evidence of formal information and training for operators or telescopic material handlers.

Telehandlers can have various attachments such as: fork tynes, crane jib, bucket, basket or work platform. In NSW, if the telehandler you are operating has over 3 tonnes SWL/WLL capacity and a crane jib attached, you require a HRW Crane Licence (CN or C2) to operate itor if over 3 tonnes SWL/WLL and has a work platform with an over 11m boom length attached, you require a WP HRW licence. If you require further information regarding the Telescopic Handler Training and/or Licensing Requirements for each state in Australia please contact www.tsha.com.au or SafeWork NSW on 13 10 50.
