Verification of Competency (VOC)

ATS can carry out Verification of Competency (VOC) on a wide range of Rail and Construction machinery including:

  • Forklift
  • Elevated Work Platform
  • Skidsteer
  • Backhoe
  • Wheeled Loader
  • Excavator
  • Mobile Crane
  • Vehicle Loading Crane
  • Overhead Crane
  • Dozer
  • Grader
  • Roller

These VOCs are conducted by qualified and experienced plant assessors and are designed to verify the competency of the operator’s existing knowledge and skills. On successful completion, a Verification of Competency Certificate will be issued, additional training can be provided to address any shortfalls identified.

Employers have a Duty of Care to ensure that all machine operators under their responsibility have not only undertaken initial training and where appropriate hold the relevant Unit of Competency but receive refresher training and are deemed competent to operate the machine they are driving.

ATS also offers refresher training for a range of equipment and can tailor a course to suit your specific requirements. This may include updates in OHS/WHS legislation or any areas that operators may need familiarising on.

Plant Risk Assessments

Suppliers & users of plant equipment have certain obligations under OHS/WHS legislation to not only provide equipment in a safe condition but also provide information and training to operators to ensure its safe operation.

Part of this process requires an assessment of the machine to be carried out to identify the risks and hazards associated with its operation and to introduce safe operational controls to safeguard the operator and personnel working around the plant equipment.

Our qualified Plant Risk Assessors are experienced on a wide range of plant equipment in various applications including rail, building and construction.

Risk assessments can be carried out on site or at the place of work. A comprehensive Risk Assessment and Plant Inspection sticker is issued on completion.
