Federal agencies engaged in service provision in Outback areas have special OHS&W concerns, especially where they don’t have their own dedicated vehicles and are flying in to jobs and relying on hire vehicles to get them to the coalface. Our 2-day Remote Areas program looks long and hard at the special risks this poses and offers a proven formula to ensure a safe working environment.
The Power Point theory session completely details the vehicle’s attributes and its weaknesses, looks at the fit-out of a typical hire vehicle and identifies where you should be wary and what to ask for. In addition we’ll cover the driving risks where the roads and tracks travelled are likely to be basic and more often than not, slippery, either due to weather events or the type of materials used in its construction. Use of 4WD will be encouraged as well Defensive methods of braking. The practicals take drivers from whatever skills level to a new confident high, with development at a rate you’re comfortable with.
Both bitumen and dirt skills will be developed and refined practising life-saving techniques that are designed to keep you safe and productive. Self-reliance is a key, and the newly learnt skills will take the nervousness out of the journey. Courses are regularly scheduled and are transportable to your site if preferred (minimum numbers apply).
