WHAT IS THE TELEHANDLER GOLD TRAINING PROGRAM?

The Telehandler Gold Card Training Program is the telehandler industry training course developed by the Elevated Work Platform Association with the assistance of YG Lifting Solutions. YG Lifting Solutions helped to develop and roll out the initial training in conjunction with the Telehandler Association of Australia (TSHA). Participants of this certified training course receive their telehandler ticket.

The Telehandler Gold Card Training Program provides training and assessment for both experienced and novice operators, like its Yellow Card sister program in the Elevated Work Platform industry.

YG Lifting Solutions are experts in the telehandler industry with over 70 years of industry experience. They were involved in the original rollout of this mandatory training and were responsible for training the trainers throughout Australia. YG Lifting Solutions are TSHA (Telescopic Handler Association of Australia) accredited trainers and leading issuers of accredited telehandler tickets.

WHO NEEDS A TELEHANDLER GOLD CARD TICKET (LICENCE)?

Anyone operating a non-slewing telehandler in NSW is required to meet Work Cover requirements. This includes Duty of Care training in the safe operation of a Telehandler. Therefore, Telehandler Gold Card Training provides the telehandler operator with the skills and knowledge required to operate the telehandler safely with different telehandler attachment combinations.

For instance, the Telehandler Gold Card will allow you to operate any capacity Telehandler with Pallet Forks. In addition, it allows you to operate a Telehandler using a jib with a maximum lifting capacity of 3 tonnes. If you wish to use a jib which lifts over 3 tonnes you will need a CN Ticket (Non-Slewing Crane Ticket) as well as a Telehandler Ticket.
However, be aware that there are different Telehandler Operator requirements in each state. Click here to view the latest official requirements as outlined by the Telescopic Handler Association of Australia

IS IT A LEGAL REQUIREMENT TO UNDERTAKE TRAINING?

Yes, you will meet your two key objectives of the OH&S acts by completing the nationally accredited Telehandler Gold Card training, those being:
– It confirms that the operator of the telehandler has been trained in the safe use of the machine.
– The employer and user both have documentary evidence that the required ‘duty of care’ has been met or exceeded.
