Operc Safetynet is the new internet-based health and safety test system co-developed by IRAS Group and international members of OPERC’S steering committee group. The test measures the health and safety awareness and plant operation knowledge retained by a trainee operator who has undertaken a basic training course in plant and equipment operation. It can also be used to periodically measure the retained knowledge of experienced operators and equipment managers and test questions are mapped against various S/NVQ level II awards. The management information system that supports the test provides an auditable trail of documentation allowing employers to prove that their employees have been trained to an appropriate standard.
