How do I choose the right PSSR or Environmental Worker Roles?
The identification of the appropriate PSSR and environment authorisation and worker role requirements is typically identified during the project establishment phase. Please discuss with the TransGrid Project Manager, Site Manager or owner of ‘the works’ to clarify the requirements.
Typically PSSR is requested in the following groupings. Click to review a PDF of this information.
How do I apply for high level PSSR Worker Roles?
TransGrid has several PSSR worker roles that are considered to be of a higher competency level and require the worker to provide additional evidence to support their application for these roles. The PSSR worker roles are:
- PSSR 5.2 – Receipt of a HV Access Authority
- PSSR 5.3 – HV Testing
- PSSR 6.3 – Receipt of a Field Access Authority
When you select these work roles, you will first need to complete a ‘Suitability Form’, linked above. This form requires the worker’s employer and the Principal Contractor/Leading Contractor to answer questions to determine the suitability of the worker for the role. This is mandatory and must be completed before the worker may proceed to training
