Event description

Description

MTA will shortly be able to announce the availability of a fully comprehensive online training system that will cover all aspects of service station activity. The training programme will consist of 10 interactive training modules with self-assessment questions, designed to ensure the staff member has understood the key elements of each module before completing the module.

Each module takes around 20-30 minutes to complete, depending on the level of comprehension and practical experience the employee has.

The Petrol Convenience Compliance (PCC) system has been developed by the Australasian Convenience and Petroleum Marketers Association (ACAPMA) and has been customised to suit the New Zealand retail fuel sector.
The Health and Safety at Work regulations place responsibility on persons conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) to ensure staff are suitably trained and that records of this training are maintained. Failure to comply with these regulations could lead to significant fines being applied.

Staff training in the service station industry covers mandatory regulatory responsibilities as well as general commercial business training areas where having a high standard of staff training places your business ahead of competitors.

With the ACAPMA online PCC NZ training system, areas such as general health and safety, fire safety and emergency response, hazardous substance handling and storage are among the topics covered.

If your service station operates a convenience store, understanding and complying with the sale of tobacco and food safety requirements are also covered, along with an overview of basic commerce law around managing issues such as price fixing.

A very competitive price has been negotiated for MTA members, allowing access for unlimited users at each site for AU$440 (non-members AU$880) per year. The more staff you have, the more cost effective the training will be.

The online system allows the PCBU to track staff training and review the outcome of each training module to identify which staff require a little extra support in areas they might not be as competent as they should be.
The training material has been shown to WorkSafe NZ who gave positive feedback on the content covering hazardous substance handling and safety. The module on site safety, including responding to aggravated robbery incidents, was also shown to NZ Police and again, positive feedback was received on this module.
