They can't... it has to be done via cPanel.

If you were to use tserwery.solutions70's method as the user (and not root), then the staff only has to enter 'passwd' not 'passwd {user_name}'.

If you want it is possible to make a PHP script to do this, but I think it would require the installation of PHP SSH2_CONNECT which I managed to install fine on my CentOS server with the help of a handy tutorial.

That is not entirely true, PHP's exec(); function can handle that with the right knowledge. There is an article at http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/change-linux-or-unix-system-password-using-php-script.html that describes how you can achieve this too.
