Who We Are?

Sheppard Training Group operates with Work Health & Safety Accredited Assessors and works in partnership with Registered Training Organisations to assist with your High Risk Work Training requirements and many other industry courses.
Why Sheppard Training Group?
All employers must adhere to the Government Occupational Health and Safety Act (OH&S), which aims to protect the health, safety and welfare of people at work. In these Acts it is clearly stated that there is a duty of care to ensure workplace safety for all.
Employers must provide information, instruction, training and supervision necessary to ensure the health and safety of employees at work.
Manufacturers and suppliers of plant must ensure equipment is safe to use when properly used and must make available adequate information about the conditions for the safe use of the equipment manufactured or supplied.
Employees must co-operate with efforts to comply with OH&S requirements.
What this means, in reality, is that there needs to be some form of proof that the operator has been trained in the field that they will be working in, verbal instruction is not an effective method of training as it lacks proof of training evidence. Sheppard Training Group offers a comprehensive and fully compliant training experience.
Our training facilities are air-conditioned and fully purpose equipped and our students have direct access to all the necessary plant required for the relevant course.
We also offer onsite training as well as group booking options at our training facilities.
Training at your own premises and group bookings provide the advantage of being able to choose the course dates that are suitable for you and your employees.
