Keeping HR Managers informed on licencing and WHS obligations

When working in human resources, maintaining the knowledge and expertise for your own position is just the beginning.

You also need to maintain an understanding of the various roles within your workplace and the duties they each entail.

Furthermore, if you are the HR Manager of a manufacturing site, transport company, rural workplace, or similar – you also need to be well-versed with the Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) regulations relevant to your site, as well as the various tickets your workers must retain in order to perform their routine duties.

For these types of workplaces, there are various different licences depending on the machinery and equipment, the working platforms and the risks involved with the employees’ duties.
To avoid occupational accidents and hazards, you as the HR Manager should have a comprehensive understanding of each ticket and what they entail.

At Elevated Training, we provide support to Human Resource professionals like yourself, including theoretical training components to gain a wider understanding of the various licenses used on your worksite and what’s required of your employees to remain competent in their respective fields.

In the unfortunate event there is an accident on site, you need to be able to prove that you took every reasonable step to ensure the competency of your workers and that WHS practices were followed diligently.

Understanding licencing, and the various WHS practices that come with each, helps your business remain compliant across the board and avoid hefty fines of up to $20,000.

To ensure your duty of care requirements are met, Elevated Training can provide the professional advice you need to ensure workers on your site operate machinery correctly safely.

If you want to keep on top of the various tickets held by your staff and the safety procedures to suit, call us today and we’ll tailor training and advice to your individual needs.
