High risk work licence assessor - Accreditations
Accredited high risk work assessors conduct Vocational Education and Training (VET) assessments for people who intend to apply for a high risk work licence (HRWL).
The assessment is conducted using a nationally approved assessment instrument for the particular class of high risk work the applicant intends to apply for.
If the HRWL applicant passes the assessment, the accredited assessor will issue them with a Notice of Satisfactory Assessment (NOSA). The NOSA forms are issued to the assessor by WorkSafe WA. An NOSA is required for a person to apply for a HRWL in Western Australia.
How to apply for accreditation
Before applying for accreditation please read the Application for accreditation to assess high risk work guide.
Visit the Application for accreditation to assess high risk work licences page when you are ready to apply.
Accredited assessors must comply with the provisions of the Work Health and Safety Act 2020 and Work Health and Safety (General) Regulations 2022. Including the requirements to:
- conduct assessments in WA only
- renew the accreditation every three years
- ensure their high risk work licence remains valid
- comply with any conditions on the accreditation
- use the nationally approved assessment instrument
- assessments can only be done for, or on behalf of, a registered training organisation (RTO) which is accredited to provide the associated VET Training course for the class of work being assessed
Assessors must maintain their competency to assess each class of work they are accredited to assess. For example, by conducting a minimum number of assessments in each class over the term of their licence. Accreditation will not be renewed if competency is not maintained.
