Changes to Assessments

In our last newsletter we mentioned that Safe Work Australia had announced that changes are being made to the assessment instruments used when completing a high risk work licence training course. We have now reviewed these new instruments and we can advise the following;

  • There have been changes to all assessments, some are more extensive than others but all have had some changes.
  • Safe Work Australia have made some sections of the assessments more easy to read, and therefore the questions make more sense and can be more easily answered than before.
  • Most changes are as a result of industry consultation and as a result the assessments are now more relevant in most workplace environments.

These changes have now been adopted by WorkSafe WA and all registered training organisations most implement these changes before 1st March 2016. With this in mind there will be some minor changes to our courses to enable these changes to occur.
