High Risk Work Licences

Anyone carrying out high risk work, like operating a forklift, must hold a high risk work licence.

Examples of high risk work

Some examples of high risk work types are:

  • cranes and hoists
  • forklift operation
  • dogging and rigging


To undertake a high risk work licence course, you will be asked to verify your identity and provide 3 ID documents when you come to training.  The friendly Admin team at AIT will provide you with a list of ID documents that are accepted when you enrol onto a course.
