Safe Formworker Program
Formwork Safety & Specific WHS Issues Learning
Developed in consultation with the formwork industry this program is a pathway for workers to receive micro credential learning on formwork specific WHS issues to increase awareness of formwork safety.
Delivered via a modern mobile learning experience, through the FIA Safe platform, the Safe Formwork Program offers bite-sized mobile courses that your team actually enjoys, complete with gamification and real rewards built-in.
Essential for all formworkers, and a requirement on some major infrastructure projects.
This easy to access micro credential learning program will be available to workers at toolbox talks, pre starts or in the shed and other times via mobile learning.
With video and image-based learning, along with gamification, it is hoped to re-engage workers in learning, tackle the language barriers and prepare workers for further learning, whilst covering the important aspects of formwork WHS issues and improving formwork safety awareness on site, so that workers can return home safely at the end of the working day.
The only current, readily accessible vehicle to verify competency and provide ongoing on the job training in Formwork.

More than just a training course ...
Access to the FIA Safe platform provides not only education on specific formwork skills and positive awareness of the industry risks, it provides each worker with their own individual access for 1 year, refresher courses, access to additional courses, a place to store their licences, white card and any other training certificates, making everyone's life a lot easier.
Training courses are short and sharp which maintains attention and allows them to fit neatly into the weekly toolbox talk seamlessly.

Who is it aimed at?
This program will provide specific formwork skills and positive awareness of the industry risks, by providing practical learning outcomes to benefit workers of all levels. It will target new workers, apprentices, female workers, aboriginal and Torres strait islanders, workers who have been in the industry for years, workers of different nationality.
The Activity will focus on the individual formworker to allow that person to increase their safety knowledge and skills, allow them to become more employable, more connected to the industry and their peers, and increase motivation and enthusiasm in the industry, as well as preparing them for future learning/training.
