VOC – Verification Of Competencies

Workers who need to exercise judgement to sling loads or who direct crane movement from outside the crane operator’s full view (such as with whistle signals or radio)

Dogging consists of two main aspects:

  • The slinging techniques used for moving a load (including the selection and inspection of lifting equipment).
  • The directing of a hoist or crane operator who is moving a load, when the load is out of the operator’s view.

Simply put, someone who engages in dogging is called a Dogger.

Course Description:

VoC is defined as ‘a method of documented evaluation of the skill level of a person against defined competency standards in order to evaluate the person’s ability to carry out the relevant activity or works.’

Accredited companies are required to ensure that workers operating mobile plant are competent, and that there is a system in place to ensure operators of mobile plant have met the minimum legislative requirements.

A VOC is something an employer can just ask you to do at any time, as part of their safety requirements, induction process etc. Workers will have to come to terms with this if they want to operate machinery. Even if you hold an old style OHS Licence, this may or may not be acceptable to an employer.

VoC Requirements for Mobile Plant Operators

What Is required:
The following can be used as evidence of competency:

• High-Risk Work Licence issued by a State or Territory under the National Certification System as per the legislation; or
• Where a High-Risk Work Licence is not required by legislation:
• Licence or Certificate of Competency issued under previous State or Territory legislation for which there is no longer a High Risk Work Licence required e.g. loadshifting equipment; or
• Statement of Attainment or Certificate issued by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) for the successful completion of the appropriate unit of competency in the Nationally Recognised Training (NRT) package; or
• evidence of formal VoC assessment against defined competency standards, which should:

− be completed, or confirmed as having been completed, by the accredited company to an acceptable level, such as the relevant NRT, internal VoC process, or equivalent;
− include a detailed and documented assessment standard;
− be completed by a person (or persons) who meets the documented competency as defined by the company to conduct a VoC assessment; and
− be evidenced by a signed, completed VoC assessment.
