On-going COSS Re-certification
Controller of Site Safety (COSS) competence must be re-assessed at least once every 24 months, with an interim assessment completed between 9 and 15 months after each assessment/reassessment.
The interim assessment is used to confirm:
- That the competence has been used on sufficient occasions for it to remain valid;
- There have been no incidents, or accidents as a result of the candidate completing the activities;
- The activities completed by the candidate meet the requirements of the performance statements in the relevant unit of competence;
- The candidate has the knowledge defined in the relevant competence unit.
If the candidate has not carried out the role of Controller of Site Safety at least on four occasions over the previous 9 to 15 months, the competence is considered withdrawn or no longer valid.
The results of the initial, interim assessments and re-assessment are recorded together with any actions taken to remedy deficiencies.
