Having a skilled and competent work force has been proven to enhance safety and productivity within any business model. The CSDAA has developed a unique training matrix that provides flexibility for both new and senior industry operators. Employers that invest in training, whether a full course or RPL, will gain short and long-term benefits.
The CSDAA has partnered with Wodonga Tafe to deliver training including an RPL for concrete sawing and drilling operators. The course supports an employer’s duty of care to provide structured training and industry awareness. Operator trends within the sawing and drilling industry can vary from one operator to another. By developing continuous learning and training initiatives, the CSDAA is well placed to assist the industry to manage and deliver these resources.
It is important that the industry invests in training to create a safer work environment and for the business to maximise productivity and efficiencies through effective training and development programs. The most important asset of every business is its operators, who are under their control and supervision.
Training and development is an instrument that empowers operators to be more productive and safer during work tasks. Therefore, having a competent and proficient workforce is beneficial for all involved, and can be the competitive advantage in a very competitive market.
