Waivers from the requirements of RISI for individuals

Applying for a RISI waiver

Where a waiver is required for an individual, the sponsor requesting the waiver must submit to an Authorised Person a completed NRFM-1496 Application for RISI Waiver form.

Sponsors requesting a waiver for individuals should consider the following before applying for a waiver to be issued:

  • the waiver will not be issued for a period of greater than five working days
  • a safety assessment has been done
  • all necessary safety arrangements will be in place to protect the person when in the Danger Zone
  • the person will be supervised at all times when in the Danger Zone by a person holding a RSW Card with relevant Worksite Protection competencies, and
  • the person will wear approved high-visibility clothing and other applicable PPE.

RISI waivers are not normally considered for workers who have completed their RISI training but are awaiting the issue of their card unless there are exceptional circumstances.

Individuals may have the RISI requirements waived for specific purposes and for limited periods of time by the following Authorised Persons:
