CoR Nationally Recognised Training Explained

The provision of nationally recognised CoR training to responsible people within an organisation is an essential component of a Reasonable Steps Defence.
Ignorance of responsibilities under CoR is not a valid defence to a prosecution.

Providing nationally recognised training released by the Transport & Logistics Industry Skills Council (TLISC), through an RTO, is one of the important components every business needs to undertake to be sure they are “taking every reasonably practicable measure to ensure safety” – and thereby also protect the business from prosecutation.

Not providing readily available nationally recognised training can be seen as not taking steps that you could have been reasonably been expected to take.

The TLISC has released a number of official training modules to address CoR Awareness and the target areas under the law. These modules are aimed at different organisational levels, to ensure the right people have access to the relevant information. We also offer some introductory training which is not nationally recognised training (non-accredited).
