Pre-Employment and Heavy Vehicle Driver Assessment

Heavy Vehicle Verification of Competency Assessment:

A Verification of Competency (VOC) is an assessment of a person's knowledge and skills in performing a task or plant and/or equipment operations and be deemed competent. The process assists employers with meeting their Workplace Health & Safety (WH&S) obligations.

Verification of Competency requirements are site and/or company specific. If a company you work for requests a current VOC for heavy vehicle operation, you will need to comply with the request in order to undertake the work.

VOC's are undertaken on persons who already hold a current ticket, licence or unit of competency, to verify that they are still competent to that standard. Persons undertaking a VOC must provide evidence of their existing competency.

The outcome of the VOC process is a Statement which references the activities or tasks verified.

The VOC process encompasses a short written (or oral) assessment of the critical knowledge components of the activity AND direct observation of practical applications of the activities.

Any person deemed not yet competent will be offered the opportunity to undertake refresher training, and undertake another VOC assessment (which may attract an additional cost).
