Employees are required to take reasonable care for their own safety and health at work and to avoid harming the safety and health of other people through any act or omission at work.
The position of employees as managers or supervisors would also affect the nature of the training provided. They may have management, or control, of some parts of the work process with other employees under their supervision. This level of responsibility would reqiure more comprehensive training in the administration of safety and health and the organisation of systems of work so employees are not exposed to hazards.
The training and instruction given should include: safety and health induction training; industry based training (ie accredited or certificated courses); hazard specific training; on-the-job trianing; in-house programs
External training courses have been established to provide a service to industry and some of these courses have been accredited by the commission for Work safety and health
Both accredited and non-accredited training courses may be used to fulfill the general duty to provide training
Employers must, as far as practicable, provide and maintain a working environment where employees are not exposed to hazards. This includes, but is not limited to, requirements to:
Provide and maintain workplaces, plant and systems of work that do not expose employees to hazards; provide information, instruction, training and supervision so employees can perform their work safely
This the part that we can assists businesses in developing site specific training packages for safety and best work practise as well induction and professional development training for a variety of skills. We also offer a VOC for industrial and processings skills service.
