If you are planning to install shoring in Australia, you will need to obtain the necessary certification to carry out this activity. This is because shoring is considered a high-risk activity, and the safety of workers and the public must be ensured. In this blog post, we will discuss the certification requirements for installing shoring in Australia.
In Australia, the regulatory framework for shoring installation varies from state to state. However, in general, shoring installation falls under the category of “high-risk work,” which requires a high-risk work license. This license is issued by the relevant state or territory regulatory authority and is required for any activity that has the potential to cause serious injury or death.
To obtain a high-risk work license, you will need to undergo training and assessment from a registered training organisation. The training will cover topics such as risk assessment, safe work practices, and the proper use of equipment. Once you have completed the training and assessment, you can apply for a high-risk work license from the relevant regulatory authority.
In addition to a high-risk work license, you may also need other certifications or qualifications depending on the specific type of shoring you will be installing. For example, if you are working with scaffolding, you may need to obtain a scaffolding ticket, which is a certification that demonstrates your competence in erecting and dismantling scaffolding.
In conclusion, if you are planning to install shoring in Australia, you will need to obtain the necessary certification to carry out this activity. This will typically include a high-risk work license and any other certifications or qualifications required for the specific type of shoring you will be installing. It is important to ensure that you are professionally trained and certified to ensure the safety of yourself, your coworkers, and the public.
