Existing licence holders

Queensland non-photographic high risk work (HRW) licences for dogging, rigging, scaffolding, pressure equipment, cranes, hoists and forklift operation have expired and must be converted to a renewable photographic HRW licence. Work cannot be carried out until your licence has been converted.

Applications to convert your non-photographic licence to a renewable photographic licence can be made at any Queensland Australia Post outlet. To lodge an application, you will need to:

If you have lost your licence/s and have not received the Prescribed occupations conversion letter, please contact Advisory Services on 1300 655 986.

Interstate licences

Only current photographic HRW licences are recognised in Australia. WHSQ is unable to convert expired interstate licences to national HRW licences as prescribed under theWork Health and Safety Regulation 2011 (PDF, 2.53 MB).

Although your licence may not have a visible expiry date, all states have a process for converting previously issued national certificates of competency to a renewable photographic HRW licence. Contact your original state of issue regarding the validity of your certificate or licence and notify them of your current address prior to making application to convert your licence to the new renewable photographic format.
