Training workers is a mandatory requirement of the work health and safety (WHS) legislation. The legislation requires the organisation to identify hazards in the workplace, develop safe work procedures and train staff in those procedures. Workers need to be assessed as competent, on the basis of their own personal skills which can be achieved through education, training or experience to certain job related tasks taking into account the hazards and risks associated with the specific work task.
All employees receive induction into workplace systems. Immediately upon commencement of duties, employees participate in:
- appropriate training
- accept responsibility for the job
- ensure quality at their workstations without the need for close supervision or continual inspection of their output and comply with all relevant procedures and work instructions.
Part of this training is to ensure that staff are aware of the relevance and importance of their activities and how they contribute to the achievement of the quality objectives.
Whenever an employee is deemed to be not yet competent to perform their work effectively and safely, immediate action is taken to rectify the situation. On completion of training, the responsible person ensures that the employee is competent and records the details in the appropriate record. Competency is reviewed after a week to ensure that the training was effective and a note to this effect is made in the training record.
Computer Assessment Portal
Our Computer Assessment Portal is under development. In the new year, we will be able to test a learner’s knowledge in relation to specific areas of responsibility such as powers of arrest for security guards or the preferred way to respond in the event of an armed robbery. Participants will log onto the system and complete a series of questions and submit their responses. Results will come up instantly.
In the meantime, we have some sample questionnaires available through the links below. You are able to access these by inputting your name, and any single digit in the 'Staff ID' field.
- Armed Robbery
- Legal Powers
- Anti Money Laundering and Counter Terrorism Financing

Toolbox Talks are a method of instruction to assist supervisors and managers to provide ongoing training to staff members during operational hours.
The aim of these sessions is that they are conducted in small groups in the workplace and take no more then five to ten minutes to complete.
