View Questions Additional Support Options

Will all contractors with my company working on Vale properties require this training?

Workers who are doing work associated to the CARs need this training after April 30, 2021. For example, a worker who operates a piece of mobile equipment will require CAR03 Operation of Mobile Equipment. A worker who does not do work associated to the CARs will not require any of the CARs training.


To be safe, should I just get my employees to do all 5 CAR modules? This way we know they will be covered.

No. Service provider employees are only required to complete a CAR training module if they are performing work associated with that CAR. Providing too much training poses as much of a risk as not providing enough training. Service providers are expected to consider the work that will be performed and assign CAR modules accordingly.


Do I have to redo the update modules if I already completed them before?

No, those that have already completed these awareness modules before they were paused in December 2020 are not required at this time to repeat the modules. Your completions will still be logged in the Training Checkr tool on the site. Note that the CAR awareness modules require a refresher every two years.


How often do people need to do these modules? Are they one time, or renewable?

The CAR modules need to be completed every two years (730 days).


Will supervisors who don't actively do the work related to the CARs need to do the CAR training to oversee the work?

Supervisors who supervise or otherwise accountable for the actions of those workers need to complete the modules as well. i.e. If a supervisor has workers who rig in a lifting operation, the supervisor, along with those workers need to complete CAR05 Lifting Mechanisms.


Do Health and Safety auditors need to complete the training as Supervisors are required to complete?

In an effort to be as informed as possible, it’s suggested that H&S professionals complete the training as well.


As a site visitor, do I require training?

Visitors to a Vale Site that are not performing work (Example: For the purpose of a tour) may only require a Visitor Orientation. If required, Vistor Orientations can be arranged through the Site's local Learning & Development team. If you require assistance to determine if this applies to you, please connect with your Vale Site Contact or our Hotline & Support team for assistance.
