Evaluate Frontline managers and supervisors need to evaluate the skills, knowledge and competence of their workers. A WHS training needs analysis is required to ensure training is given to relevant people. Training needs analyses may be conducted when new workers are inducted into the organisation. Training needs may be identified at this time and may need to be addressed before the worker commences their tasks. Identify The identified needs may be categorised according to priority, indicating which needs are urgent and which are of lower priority. All aspects of the worker’s environment must be taken into consideration.
