OHS / WHS Training
Investing in effective employee training will increase skills, knowledge, workplace productivity, morale and help reduce workplace accidents and near misses.
What does the law require?
Australian Safety Laws require employers (PCBUs) to provide the necessary training to workers to enable them to perform their work in a manner that is safe and without risks to their health and safety.
Various regulations made under the Acts (such as the Plant Regulations and Hazardous Substances Regulations) require employers to provide training to employees on:
- The nature of the hazards
- The processes used for hazard identification, risk assessment and risk control and how to effectively measure and control these risks
- Safety procedures (such as Safe Work Instructions or Safe Work Method Statements)
- To supply and use personal protective equipment and how to properly use and maintain it
