HAZCON has had continued interest with delivering dangerous goods and hazardous substances accredited training courses to organisations and individuals that focuses on hazardous chemicals in the warehousing and logistics industry. These accredited courses include:
The aim of the module is to provide individuals with the necessary skills and knowledge required to handle dangerous goods and hazardous substances, including identifying and working with dangerous goods and/or hazardous substances, confirming site incident procedures and selecting handling techniques. This module would suit individuals working in the transport, warehousing, distribution and storage industries who may handle dangerous goods and/or hazardous substances.
This will be the second module included in the scope, which will provide individuals with the appropriate skills and knowledge required to implement and monitor work health and safety (WHS)/occupational health and safety (OHS) policies, safe work procedures and programs for warehousing or storing dangerous goods and hazardous chemicals in accordance with regulatory requirements, as part of work undertaken in the transport and logistics industry.
The objectives of these training courses are to provide individuals and businesses with training recognition that will be accepted nationally. The training will inform, test knowledge and determine competency when handling, storing and preparing dangerous goods/hazardous substances or hazardous chemicals in different situations when working in the warehousing and logistic industry.
What does course accreditation mean?
According to the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) accreditation is a formal confirmation that the course has been nationally recognised and meets the established industry, enterprise, legislative or community needs. Furthermore, it provides appropriate competency outcomes and a satisfactory basis for assessment, which meets the national quality assurance requirements and is aligned appropriately to the Australian Quality Framework (AQF) where it may lead to further qualifications.
Thing to consider when selecting accredited courses
It is important to research Registered Training Organisations (RTO's) and what accredited training courses they have to offer and how often these courses are delivered. This will assist you with keeping in touch with current trends that are emerging within specific industries. The RTO can deliver the training in a number of ways, it may take place in a number of different locations or may be customised to suit your organisation. The delivery methods can range from:
Once you have established the most suitable RTO that meets your needs with delivering the accredited course, the next process would be to request the trainer and/or assessor qualifications and confirm that they have the appropriate industry knowledge and skills that can be disseminated onto the learners with a holistic approach.
