    Every year I fly to Adelaide to conduct an audit. I have done this for many years, however, this year I had a more time available and decided on a slight change. Those who know me, know I am an avid rider, so this year, I thought I’d ride down on my motorbike. What I didn’t realise was that it was going to be a good lesson on risk control.

    When it comes to identifying hazards and risks, it’s a good idea to work with an experienced group and include people both familiar with the work area, as well as ‘fresh eyes’ – those that aren’t familiar with the work. When we go through tasks regularly, it’s easy to be blind to the risks and hazards, as I will details below.

“This is an excellent course – very informative, very relevant and helpful. Tom is an exceptional trainer, highly knowledgeable and personable. Learned heaps – best course I have done.”

“Overall very valuable course. Balance of theory with practical workshops was excellent. Trainers stuck to timetable very well.”

“The course was thorough and many relevant examples provided by both Tom and Jackie to help me apply it to the workplace.”

“Great presentation of the course, engaging facilitators and good use of group work. I found the course to be a great refresher for an audit course I did 10 years ago and now feel more motivated to go audits in a non-bow tie way!”

“Trainers’ knowledge was excellent, their knowledge made the training and learning easy.”
