The competencies a worker requires depend on the circumstances of the work. Supervisors are expected to perform a job task analysis to determine the risks faced by the worker. This job task analysis must consider:
- All of the tasks a worker is expected to perform to do the job
- The environment and circumstances in which the work is to be performed
- All of the equipment the worker is expected to use
- All of the health and safety risks associated with the work
In all cases, training must be conducted in a safe manner and in compliance with the NL Occupational Health and Safety Regulations. Sufficient supervision must be provided in the workplace to ensure training and instruction has been practicable and work is being done effectively and safely.
Environmental Health and Safety has developed a training matrix to assist supervisors and managers in identifying training needs for their employees.
