Course Overview
A telescopic materials handler or telehandler, is a mobile all terrain multi-purpose machine fitted with a variable height/reach telescopic boom and a lifting attachment.

The most common attachment are forks, but telehandlers can be fitted with a variety of attachments for different types of loads.

Some other attachment types that could be fitted to your Telehandler are:
Work Platforms
Earth moving buckets
Crane/Lifting Jibs
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. A Gold Card provides evidence of formal information and training for operators of telescopic material handlers.

Please note: Telescopic Handlers with greater than three tonnes lifting capacity and fitted with a crane jib attachment, require a High Risk Work licence to operate them in most states (Class CN, C2 or above). This course does not cover High Risk Work licensing. If you require a HRW licence to operate your telehandler combination, please advise us so we can book you into the appropriate course.
