Safe System of Work Planner Assessment

Course Aims

Following completion of the Safe System of Work training a delegate will be issued with a competence endorsed as Probationary.
In order to remove the Probationary status, the delegate must complete a period of mentorship.
The Post Mentoring assessment must be completed within four months of the initial training.
The Assessor should assess a total of four SSOW packs produced by the planner that have been through the whole SSOWP process and have been returned by the COSS/IWA.
The assessor is to observe the planner producing a SSOW pack required by their Responsible Manager and the Person in Charge (PIC). The assessor can observe the planner producing more than one pack.
An Interim competence assessment is required between 9-15 months from the post mentoring competence assessment. The candidate must have at least four entries on their work experience forms and 2 work experience entries of track visits prior to the interim assessment.
The planner must then have at least 4 SSOWP entries on the work experience form plus 2 work experience track visits since the interim assessment and prior to any recertification event.
