Offering training and licensing in several high-risk roles including the operation of EWPs, securing your yellow card with us is simple and straightforward.
A necessary qualification for employees working with any EWP under 11 metres, holding a yellow card is also a valuable addition to your resume.
If you’re seeking to boost your employability and secure a higher salary, undertaking this short, one-day course is a great place to start.
Understanding The Yellow Card
For any job where a scissor lift or boom-type elevating work platform under 11m is used, a yellow card is required for its operation.
Failure to hold the correct qualifications can see you met with a ‘no card no start’ policy which is a component of OH&S legislation. This is part of why it is so highly valued by employers.
Not only is it a highly sought-after qualification in the construction industry, but a yellow card can support you to gain employment in a wide variety of roles.
These roles include but are not limited to:
- HVAC installation
- Tree trimming (arborists)
- Electrical work
- Painting and decorating
- Warehouse management
- Repairs and maintenance
- Window cleaning and more.
Is It Easy To Get A Yellow Card?
Obtaining a Yellow Card is easy to achieve with the support of a Registered Training Organisation (RTO). The course is held over one day with both theory and practical elements to complete.
You will learn a variety of skills such as:
- Hazard identification and risk assessment
- Reporting procedures
- How to perform pre-operation checks of machinery
- The safe operation of the machinery
- Managing emergencies
- Post operation checks
- Shutdown procedures
- Safe parking of machinery
Once you have passed the assessment an interim certificate is provided. Your RTO then completes the necessary application form and submits this to the Elevating Work Platform Association.
This application form is then processed and your Yellow Card is posted directly to you.
The Yellow Card & Employability
When it comes to securing employment, having a variety of skills on your resume is always highly beneficial. In terms of having your Yellow Card certification, this is certainly true.
Not only does it make you more appealing to potential employers it widens your prospects, giving you more choice over the type of role you work in.
Employers value Yellow Card certification as it helps them meet their OH&S obligations regarding Safe Work practices. It also makes you a more versatile employee capable of handling a broader range of tasks.
This makes you more valuable as an employee which can also mean better remuneration and career prospects long-term.
