OHS Competence & Training
The benefits to an organisation from an educated and skilled workforce is not confined to productivity alone. It is also an important leverage in achieving Health & Safety performance and incident-free operations.
It facilitates communications and clear understanding of policies, procedures and work instructions. This in turn results in reduced incidents and losses.
An additional consideration in this regard is the practice among many organisations of designating Safety-Critical positions. These positions have inherently higher risk and loss potentials.
The element of Training & Competence plays an important role in preparing and maintaining incumbents and new candidates for such positions duly qualified and certified.
