Workers reminded to renew NT WorkSafe-issued licences

Workers in the Northern Territory are reminded to renew their WorkSafe issued licences following an increase in the number of workers trying to renew expired licences.

The safety regulator also reminds High-Risk Work Licence holders who want to change their residential addresses that they have to notify NT WorkSafe within 14 days of the change occurring.

NT WorkSafe says that High-Risk Work Licences for operating equipment, including forklifts and cranes, are issued under the Work Health and Safety (National Uniform Legislation) Act 2011.

"Licences are issued under the Dangerous Goods Act 1998 for gasfitting and shot firing, and under the Transport of Dangerous Goods by Road and Rail (National Uniform Legislation) Act 2010 to drive vehicles transporting dangerous goods," the NT workplace health and safety regulator said.

According to the regulator, workers who allow their licence to expire for a long period may be required to apply for a new licence and show proof of competency.
