There is a legal requirement to provide training in occupational health and safety, in order to assist in achieving the duty of care for the health, safety and welfare of our employees.
This is contained in the principal OHS Act in each state of Australia. There are also specific safety training requirements, which are prescribed in specific regulation provisions.
These include training requirements such as:
first aid training
safety committee training (if you have one)
safety representative training (if you have one)
forklift driver training
crane operator training
return to work coordinator training
construction induction training
manual handling training
confined space entry training
hazardous substances training if you handle chemicals in the workplace and many others.
a training matrix (identifies OHS skills required for employees and their respective job position)
job safety analyses (includes training and competency for each task)
specific hazard risk assessments (e.g. manual handling-safe lifting technique training)
legislation requirements (e.g. plant operator certification)
