Align your training with GWO standards
Do your employees have some training or qualifications you think could be similar to a GWO standard?
GWO has developed a merit process to help assess existing qualifications, training and curricula. This process is called 'Merit Assessment' and so long as the existing training matches the learning objectives of GWO standards, an equivalent GWO training record can be awarded to the individual concerned. This record can then be uploaded into WINDA.
The merit process is intended for:
- New GWO members and other organisations who wish to migrate or receive merit of their existing training to GWO Safety Training Standards
Merit assessing existing training against a GWO standard allows employers to:
- Utilise the GWO database WINDA for verification
- Establish recognition for previously non-GWO-certified personnel
- Enjoy all of the safety and productivity benefits shared by employers operating in the GWO framework
For employers, the merit process includes a formal application and gap analysis (to identify if any gaps that may exist between your training and the relevant GWO standard.
The process requires certain documentation as described in the Criteria for Merit Assessor and a subsequent video audit.
