What makes a competent worker?

Did you know?
A worker who is not yet competent must be directly supervised by another competent worker to ensure their health & safety.
At WCFF we provide operators with the basic knowledge and skill requirements for the safe operation of their equipment and it’s attachments.
It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that its workers are competent to perform the duties requested of them. Additional training and on-going skills auditing is required.
