Do I Need A License To Operate An Excavator?
In Queensland, it’s no longer necessary to have a license in order to operate an excavator, including in crane mode. However, excavators can still be dangerous and accordingly the overseer in charge of the job site must ensure that operators are considered competent to use the device. This can be determined in a number of ways, including a variety of previously issued certificates from former legislation, a statement of attainment, on the job training or in-house training. Our staff at Flexihire can provide further information around the relevant requirements.
