TELEHANDLER LICENCE: WORKSAFE SURVEYS DEMAND

Following recent amendments to our OHS Regs creating a new non-slewing telehandler license, WorkSafe has created a survey to establish where operators are located and how far they are willing to travel to undertake training.

The regulator says data captured will be used by training organisations, particularly in regional areas, to gauge likely demand for the new license among Victorian agricultural workers.

Access WorkSafe’s telehandler user’s survey here.

The amended regulations commence on Monday, 1 July, from which date the new training course can be undertaken.
