Supervisory Responsibility Role

Recommended Posts

Hi all, well I think this might generate a bit of a debate on responsibility. Well that’s what I am hoping.

 

I my mate and me work for a company and we are the only two in the company qualified in arb, we are both climbers, both have RFS Cert; he has his Tech cert and yr 1foundation degree. Now our R/A was drawn up and revised by our manager (not qualified in arb) we have a team leader (not qualified in arb)

 

We are told that our team leader is responsible for us, to check our chainsaws, including climbing equipment, the service and repair, and to ensure we are using it safely.

 

We have been told by our H/S officer they don’t need to be trained to supervise or manage us to manage our H/S as we are both qualified and take full responsibility.

 

So my question is just that, do they need qualifications to supervise? And how in your opinion should the hierarchy be structured in relation to the people who should hold or take responsibility. I.e. the s**t trail that hits the fan when things go wrong.

 

Cheers

No its us that do all the work, the manager runs the department, bugets and all the usual stuff and team leader he started a year ago, he supervises a grass team but he also supervises us.
