High Risk Licences

High risk licences are compulsory for a range of high risk activities such as operating a forklift, erecting scaffolding, operating cranes, carrying out dogging etc.

It is an offence under the Work health and safety legislation to allow persons to perform high risk work without a current licence and it is an offence under the Crimes Act (1900) for using or possessing or making a false document. The maximum penalty is imprisonment for up to 10 years. 

High risk work licences are valid for five years. You can search online to confirm the status of a Queensland HRW licence, although the search will only return results for workers that hold a current HRW licence and for licences requiring renewal.

To check a HRW licence call 1300 362 128 or check website
