VOC: Verification of Competency

Employers Beware – Verification of Competency
Have you employed a plant operator lately?
Have you just inducted a new contractor onto your site?
If you answered Yes, then will your answer to the next two questions also be YES?
Did you look at their qualifications and experience and think “They should be right, they have had their ticket for 5 or even 10 years?” OR Did you actually check that they were competent?

Verification of Competency (VOC) is an essential consideration for employers when confirming plant operators skills.

In simple terms, VOC works like this…
Before someone starts using a piece of earthmoving equipment you conduct an assessment to prove they have the knowledge and skills to operate the machine safely. If they pass then you have verified that they are competent. If they do not pass, you have identified gaps in the operators’ knowledge and/or skill and can organise training to address those gaps. Workers are changing careers every day and operators are taking on new roles constantly – so currency of knowledge and skills is just as important as holding a ‘ticket’ which may not have been used for a long time.

Construction Training North East with our experienced trainers to conduct  VOC’s on all types of plant. We can come to you and put your workers through a range of assessments to verify their current competence.

Note: For VOC you must have existing ticket for item of plant being verified
