Employers Beware!

Have you employed a plant operator lately?

Have you just inducted a contractor onto your site?

If you answered Yes, then will your answer to the next two questions also be YES?

Did you look at their qualifications and experience and think “They should be right, they have had their ticket for 5 or even 10 years?” OR Did you actually check that they were competent?Verification of competency (VOC) is an essential consideration for employers when on boarding plant operators.

Employing new members of staff for your team is great, but to ensure you keep the rest of your team and your business safe, you may want to verify their qualifications or level of competency. This verification will ensure that they are trained to the right level, and know how to use all the equipment they need to before they start to use any earthmoving equipment. If they pass they are safe to operate the machinery, and if they don’t pass, you will know what areas they need training in to get them to the right skill and knowledge level for their role. At Construction Training Group we offer verification of competency, and can even come to you to verify your worker’s competence.

What is a VOC?

A VOC is a form of assessment designed to ensure that all staff can safely and competently operate certain equipment. Once completed, if all staff pass you will receive verification that your staff can operate the machine they need to use safely, if they don’t pass, you will be able to address these gaps in knowledge to make your workplace, and your employees safer. Even if new staff come to you with a ‘ticket’ and years of experience, having their skills and knowledge verified will ensure that those skills are double-checked. If an unfortunate accident happens, you will be able to show that all employees have been properly trained and verified, therefore you have done everything possible to prevent an incident from happening.

VOC’s are essential for preventing accidents, preventing damage to equipment, showing employees that you value their safety and helping them to stay eligible to operate everything necessary for their job. It will also help to make sure that everyone stays up to date and competent when technology gets updated.

In simple terms, VOC works like this…

Before someone starts using a piece of earthmoving equipment you conduct an assessment to prove they have the knowledge and skills to operate the machine safely. If they pass then you have verified that they are competent. If they do not pass, you have identified gaps in the operators knowledge and/or skill and can organise training to address those gaps. Workers are changing careers everyday and operators are taking on new roles constantly – so currency of knowledge and skills is just as important as holding a ‘ticket’ which may not have been used for a long time. Construction Training Group with our experienced range of trainers on hand conducts VOC’s on all types of plant. We can come to you and put your workers through a range of assessments to verify their current competence. Please contact one of our friendly staff for bookings.
