National Licensing for Earthmoving or Particular Crane (EPC) Occupational Classes

Under new nationally harmonised work health and safety (WHS) laws, earthmoving or particular crane (EPC) occupational classes are not required to be licensed from 1 January 2012.

Plant that falls under the EPC class are as follows:

  • Dump truck
  • Backhoe
  • Front end loader
  • Excavator
  • Skid steer loader
  • Road roller
  • Grader
  • Scraper
  • Dozer
  • Bridge and gantry remote control crane

    No replacement EPC plant licences will be issued after 31 December 2011.

    Why has it changed?

    It was agreed on a national level that as licensing is the highest form of regulatory intervention, that it should only be applied in situations with substantial risk of serious injury. As a consequence, all load shifting classes of work were put through a rigorous assessment process to determine if they required licensing. These classes of work did not meet the criteria for licensing as high risk work.

    What happens under the new laws?

    From 1 January 2012, it was announced that the duty of a person conducting a business or undertaking PCBU to ensure competency of the operator when plant is operated when reasonably practical.

    Can bridge and gantry
    remote cranes sling their
    own load?



    Under the new WHS legislation the operator of an LBG can continue to sling a load under the limited circumstances listed below:

        The bridge and gantry crane is operated by remote control and has no more than three powered motions.
        The weight of the load to be lifted is predetermined by a competent person and marked on the load.
        Selection of the sling and slinging techniques for the load is predetermined by a competent person.
        Condition of lifting gear is predetermined by a competent person.
        Lifting points are predetermined by a competent person and marked on the load.
        The load is lifted within the view of the operator at all times.
        Standard lifting procedures have been documented and signed-off by a competent person.

    Unless these circumstances are met, a holder of a high risk work dogging (DG) licence must be used to sling all loads. A competent person includes a holder of a high risk work dogging licence or a high risk work licensed rigger, or an engineer experienced in designing crane lifting procedures. A holder of a previously issued LBG certificate is required to obtain either a high risk work DG licence or a high risk work bridge and gantry crane licence (CB), as of the 31 of December 2012.
