For anyone who applies for a role on a worksite; whether it be in mining, construction or an agricultural field; your task is not only to operate the machinery you’re qualified to use – but also to do so in a safe manner.

This is not only crucial for your own personal safety, but also for that of everyone around you.

Similarly, Human Resource (HR) Managers for manufacturing and construction sites, transport and mining companies, or rural workplaces should have a comprehensive understanding of each ticket and the associated risks operating the machinery to avoid occupational accidents and hazards.

This means they could have to learn about forklifts, EWPs, bobcats, excavators, skid steers… you name it! All so they can understand the risks and the safety protocols to mitigate those risks.

First and foremost, this is for the safety of staff; however it’s also to ensure the organisation is compliant with Work Health and Safety (WHS) regulations.

At Elevated Training, we don’t just provide exceptional training for workers seeking licensing and log book hours, but we also provide training, advice and support to HR professionals.

We can provide theoretical training components for HR managers to gain a wider understanding of the various licenses and the best practices for mitigating risk in the workplace.

In the unfortunate event there is an accident on site; managers need to be able to prove that every reasonable step was taken to ensure the competency of workers and that WHS practices were followed diligently.

Understanding licencing, and the various WHS practices that come with each, helps a 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 and 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.
