Kador has embraced the new Work Health and Safety Act 2011, by embarking on a significant training programme to upskill staff in a number of critical high risk work areas. Over 80 employees across all three workshops have been involved in the programme which includes Dogging, Rigging (Basic and Intermediate), Overhead Crane, Elevated Work Platform, Working at Heights and Modular Scaffolding.
The training has been undertaken in conjunction with WH&S Training & Assessment Services and Manufacturing Skills Queensland. WH&S Training specialises in high risk work training and assessment in the manufacturing sector and have been on-site at Kador on average three days a week since October 2011, with the final stage of the programme due to be completed in June 2012.
More than 700 hours of face-to-face training and assessment time has been undertaken as part of the programme which has also included separate English language skills enhancement for those who need it.
