Training starts at induction when an employee or contractor commences work. Every role within the Department has specific OHS responsibilities, each requiring particular levels of competency.
We must identify those competencies and ensure that our employees not only understand the Department's expectations, but also, that they have the training necessary to competently meet those responsibilities.
The provision of adequate information, instruction and training in a structured and timely manner will ensure employees and contractors understand their health and safety obligations and that they are competent to perform tasks associated with their roles safely.
This section contains procedures and forms to assist workplace managers to identify training requirements specific to their workplace and operating environment.
