A Verification of Competency is a skills assessment undertaken to determine a person’s current level of competency to operate workplace equipment (regardless of whether a licence is required or not).
Workplace Health and Safety legislation requires that all employers must demonstrate a duty of care to its workforce by ensuring employees have the skills and competency to perform their duties involving the operation of workplace equipment. SpecialisedVOCAustralia allows you to assess your workforce in your workplace using your own supervisors.
Further benefits to the employer include a safer work environment, higher productivity and reduced risk of damage to valuable equipment. A VOC is often an integral part of the recruitment process when employing new staff or contractors, with immediate identification of whether up-skilling is required in order for a person to adequately fulfil a role.
