What is a Telehandler Gold Card and why do I need one?
A Gold Card provides evidence of formal information and training for operators or telescopic material handlers. 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 Primary Duty 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.
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 it or if the telehandler has a work platform with an over 11m boom length attached (regardless of the capacity), 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 The Telescopic Handler Association +61 2 9998 2222 or WorkCover NSW on 13 10 50.
Standard Telehandler Gold Card training is usually conducted with a fork attachment in a 1-day course. Both theory and practical training and competency assessments are conducted during the course and content topics include:
- Site inspections and hazard identification/controls

- Use of operations logbook
- Use of stabilisers and attachments
- Identify and understand safety decals, operators’ manuals and compliance plates

On successful completion of training, participants meeting the assessment criteria will be issued a Statement of Attainment in RIIHAN309D Operate Telescopic Materials Handler Equipment and a Telescopic Handler Association (TSHA) Trained Operator Gold Card for the type of Telehandler and attachments you have been trained in the use of.
