An Excavator Operator is one of the most common machine operators around Sydney. The primary use of an excavator is to excavate and move loads of earth. However, some excavators are used in the demolition of buildings also as they are very powerful machines and depending on the type of attachment used they be also be very versatile. The size of excavators used varies depending on the job at hand sizes these can range from 1.5 tonne to 30 + tonne. Different tasks completed by an operator include final trim, detailed and bulk out work. To be allowed work on some sites the operator need to be able to show that they are competent operators. This is often certified by way of a Verification of Competency.
To operate a forklift in Australia you will need to hold an Australian Forklift license (LF). Forklifts are used primarily for moving loads and goods around warehouses and construction sites. They are useful for lifting heavy loads to places that would be hard for normal operators and more to operate.
To operate a telehandler in Australia you will need to have a Gold Card. Telehandlers are like Forklifts except they are capable of lifting much heavier loads. These are often found on construction sites unloading and loading deliveries to and from site.
When hiring an EWP operator, the most important thing to bear in mind is there is two classes of EWP: Under 11m (SL) and over 11m (BL). In order to operate either of these Elevated Work Platforms a worker will need to hold the relevant high-risk work license to operate them. These are often used to get workers to area where it is not safe for them to access via a ladder usually to install cladding, roof tiles in high ceilings or for electrical installations.
