Twelve Noongar Rangers from Narrogin have received nationally accredited Chem-Safe training in handling and applying dangerous goods and chemical substances, as part of Peel-Harvey Catchment Council’s commitment to building knowledge within local communities.
Peel-Harvey Catchment Council provided all spraying and protective equipment for the course.
“As well as being a nationally recognised qualification, the knowledge gained on handling dangerous goods is a practical life skill for anyone. We were pleased to participate in this initiative with such a great group of trainees,” said Craig Watt, General Manager, Chem-Safe.
This initiative boosts land management skills and opens options for employment for our Noongar community to work on country.
The Peel-Harvey Catchment Council is able to provide these training opportunities through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Programme.
