Falsified High Risk Licences discovered again

Falsified High Risk Work Licences are in the spotlight again after another was found in Western Australia.

WorkSafe WA is again warning employers to check the High Risk Work Licences of workers after a man, who goes by the name Peter Kevin Jenkins, falsified 12 classes of High Risk Work Licence.

The falsified licence says Jenkins is licenced for dogging, vehicle loading cranes, forklifts, tower cranes, advanced rigging, slewing mobile cranes, advanced scaffolding, hoists, concrete placing booms, boom-type elevated work platforms (EWPs), derrick cranes and portal boom cranes.

WorkSafe WA also issued warnings about falsified licences in March. “Mr Jenkins is one such operator, and I strongly advise anyone looking to employ a worker with a High Risk Work Licence to steer clear of him, and to satisfy themselves that anyone they are thinking of employing has the experience they claim to have,” WorkSafe WA Commissioner Lex McCulloch said in a media statement.

“High Risk Work Licences are only issued to workers who have been appropriately trained and have the skills to perform high risk work safely and competently, which Mr Jenkins may not.

“The falsified licence he is using is not a particularly good copy, and has an old and outdated WorkSafe logo in the top right-hand corner.

“The licence number belongs to someone else and it has not been established whether he is using his real name or how many other aliases he may be operating under.”
