Plant can include things like cranes, delivery booms, boilers, escalators and amusement devices. They have a higher level of risk associated with operating them and their use and maintenance must be registered with us.
Design and item registration is required under Clause 702A of the WHS Regulation 2017.
Design registration is not required for plant designed prior to 1 September 2001 and for:
- passenger ropeways
- fixed concrete placing booms designed before 13 February 2015.
Until 01 January 2018, the definitions used for plant item registration are those used in the Occupational Health & Safety Regulation 2001. Arrangements after this date will be updated on this website.
