VERIFICATION OF COMPETENCY (VOC)
A Verification of Competency (VOC) is an independent assessment to verify competence and current compliance that assists employers to meet WHS requirements and ensure staff are still competent to operate equipment or perform a task. It is commonly used in many industries for pre-employment checks, contractual arrangements or site requirements.
Employers cannot ‘assume an employee is competent’. A Verification of Competency (VOC) assessment assists the employer to determine that the skill level of an operator is appropriate for the plant and task.
