Since the safety regulators ceased issuing a number of operator licences, the onus is now on the business to ensure that an operator of plant and equipment in the workplace is competent.
These 37 Verification of Competency (VOC) Assessors will soon be able to formally verify the competency of a worker before they use plant and equipment. A highly prized qualification in any CV and one that adds value to the profession and to any employer as it will save the business time and money and significantly reduce environment and safety risk.
We’ll keep you posted on the outcomes through some case studies as the training sessions roll out across the country.
