WHSQ Safety Alert - Fit testing for tight-fitting respirators

WHSQ has issued a Safety Alert for Fit Testing respirators

The Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011 highlights the importance of fit testing for tight-fitting respirators for workers who need to use them.

While the Regulator outlines the requirements for persons who carry out fit test, i.e. they must have:

  • a knowledge of the respirators used for the fit test
  • knowledge of the fit-test method
  • ability to set up all applicable equipment and monitor its function.
  • ability to carry out the test and evaluate the results.
  • ability to identify likely causes of fit-test failure
there is no mention of the training workers who are required to wear the RPE should receive.
Inscope Training provides high quality training for fitting and testing RPE for a competitive fee of $35.

There is now no reason for any company or workers in Australia not to do this course - Wearing, Fitting & Checking Masks

If you require your workers to undertake this training don't hesitate to contact us for group discounted fees.

National Asbestos Awareness Week 22-28 November 2021

22-28 November 2021 is National Asbestos week. This year's campaign asks Australians to Think Twice About Asbestos. The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness amongst the public and key trades about the health risks associated with exposure to asbestos fibres. Asbestos is still present in millions of homes, as well as public and commercial buildings across Australia. In homes built before 1990, asbestos can still be found anywhere, affecting 1 in 3 homes nationwide.

Asbestos fibres can pose a risk to health if airborne, as inhalation is the main way that asbestos enters the body causing mesothelioma, lung cancer, ovarian cancer, laryngeal cancer, asbestosis, COPD, pleural plaques, pleural thickening, pleural effusion and atelectasis. The use of asbestos is prohibited in Australia. Building materials supplier USG Boral earlier this month discovered “low levels” of asbestos in products it had imported from China causing the temporary close down of the Brisbane Queens Wharf project (McLeod 2021; Dennis 2021).

This article shares some information about Inscope's Asbestos Awareness course and how you can keep safe or how your business can keep your staff safe from Asbestos exposure in the workplace.

Free JSA/SWMS Generator

Here at Inscope Training we are proud of our reputation as a provider of high-quality training to the Australian trades industries so we obviously use the most up-to-date technology and learning resources.

As most would probably be aware quite a few of the units in the new CPC packages require students to review, amend and/or create JSA and SWMS’s.

This process can be quite onerous for students to create and for trainers to mark, so as usual, the crew at Ammonite used their experience and cutting edge technical skills to create a free SWMS/JSA Generator to make these activities valid, intuitive, and to provide students with the tools and skills they need to survive.

The tool is available here.
Of course, they also provide a short instructional video on how to use the tool.

Apprentice wage support for small businesses

As part of the Government’s Economic Response to the Coronavirus, $1.3 billion will be made available to 70,000 small businesses to help them keep around 117,000 apprentices and trainees across the country in work and training.

What is Supporting Apprentices and Trainees?
Supporting Apprentices and Trainees provides a wage subsidy to small businesses (including those using a Group Training Organisation) to support the retention of their existing apprentices and trainees. This recognises the benefits of training already undertaken by apprentices and trainees and the significant investment made by employers.

The wage subsidy is also available to employers of any size, including a Group Training Organisation, if they re-engage an apprentice or trainee that has been displaced from a small business.

The wage subsidy will support businesses to manage cash-flow challenges and help small businesses retain their apprentices and trainees. This will help to ensure the continued development of the skilled workforce that employers need.

How much will be available to employers?
Eligible employers will receive assistance in the form of a wage subsidy reimbursed in arrears at 50 per cent of the apprentice’s or trainee’s wage.

The wage subsidy will be available for a maximum of nine months, covering wages paid from 1 January 2020 to 30 September 2020, or paid from the date of re-employment for an apprentice or trainee who has been displaced.

Employers will be reimbursed up to a maximum of $7,000 per quarter, per eligible apprentice or trainee.

Who is eligible?
Eligible employers will receive assistance in the form of a wage subsidy reimbursed in arrears at 50 per cent of the apprentice’s or trainee’s wage.

An employer who retains an apprentice or trainee in their Australian Apprenticeship may be eligible for the subsidy where:

  • the employer is a small business (with fewer than 20 employees); or
  • a small business (with fewer than 20 employees) using a Group Training Organisation; and
  • the apprentice or trainee was undertaking an Australian Apprenticeship with the employer on 1 March 2020

Any employer (including all small, medium or large businesses or Group Training Organisations) who re-engage an out-of-trade apprentice or trainee may be eligible for the subsidy where:

  • the apprentice or trainee was undertaking an Australian Apprenticeship on 1 March 2020, in a small business; and
  • the apprentice or trainee was released from the small business; and
  • the new employer or Group Training Organisation has engaged the apprentice or trainee.

When will Supporting Apprentices and Trainees be available?
Employers can register with an Australian Apprenticeship Support Network (AASN) provider for the subsidy from 2 April 2020.

Employers will be able to access the subsidy after an eligibility assessment is undertaken by an AASN provider and following submission of a claim form and other supporting documentation by the employer.

Final claims for payment must be lodged by 31 December 2020.

How are payments made?
Payments are made directly to the recipient’s nominated bank account.

Are full-time and part-time apprentices and trainees eligible?
Yes, employers of both full-time and part-time apprentices and trainees may be eligible to attract the subsidy.

Where can employers find further information?
Contact Inscope Training on 1300 579 808 to find out more information, or to find an AASN in your area.
