REDI.E Staff Upskilling with TAFE Courses

29 September, 2020

Several REDI.E staff have undergone TAFE courses, to upskill and assist with future CDP activities. 

Projects and Safety Officer Peter Morris, Site Manager Gavin Gibbs, CDP Activity Supervisors Phillip Wright, Brain Smith and Corey Hardy all completed three courses:
  • Supervise Asbestos Removal
  • Remove Non-Friable Asbestos
  • Prepare to Work Safely in the Construction Industry - White Card

CDP Activity supervisors Andrew Keane and Keith Mooney also completed the White Card and Non Friable Asbestos Removal courses.

At REDI.E, we are always striving to give our staff opportunities to broaden their skillset, and gain qualifications that will assist in expanding our programs. 

The Supervise Asbestos Removal course is for people required to supervise the removal of asbestos containing materials (ACM). Participants develop skills in identifying requirements of the WHS Regulations and Codes of Practice to develop safe work procedures, consult with clients, complete site establishment plans, develop procedures for working at heights, develop safe work method statements, develop waste procedures and complete WorkCover notification procedures.

The Remove Non-Friable Asbestos course is for people who work with or intend to work with non-friable asbestos. It covers the essential knowledge and skills in non-friable asbestos removal, as required by Safe Work Australia's model codes of practices. Participants learn about health hazards and how to work safely with non-friable ACM

The Prepare to Work Safely in the construction industry - White Card provides the mandatory work health and safety training required prior to undertaking construction work in NSW. On completion, participants are able to demonstrate personal awareness and knowledge of health and safety legislative requirements in order to work safely and prevent injury or harm to self and others.

We look forward to helping with more construction projects in the future, now that our staff have this knowledge under their belts!

This initiative is funded/supported by the Australian Government.
