Are you considering a new career in work health and safety or looking to become a certified WHS Manager? Are you looking to align your current skills and knowledge to increase your employability by adding a senior WHS accreditation to your resume? Or do you currently conduct WHS tasks but don’t have the formal recognition yet?
Workplace Health and Safety is a critical component for the success of workplace welfare, safety, and productivity. Companies are acknowledging and reflecting the wide-reaching impact of good work health and safety practice and risk management more than ever. If you have been considering a change in career or to increase your employability, now it is the time to add work health and safety accreditation to your profession with a Diploma of Work Health and Safety BSB51319.
This accredited program is currently one of the most in-demand accreditations in Australia. It is designed for those seeking to develop skills and knowledge in areas such as workplace investigation of WHS incidents, management of effective WHS consultation processes with various stakeholders, contribution to the systematic management of WHS risk, understanding WHS information systems, and implementation of an emergency procedure.
Completion of this program will provide participants with the skills and knowledge that cover the informed application of relevant legislation, the identification of workplace hazards, risk assessment, emergency procedures, and workplace monitoring. In addition, you will be well-equipped to ensure that your staff, workplace site, project, or operation have the skills and expertise required to manage and implement workplace health and safety policy and regulations with confidence.
This qualification is relevant to today’s current industry standards and reflects the skills and competencies needed to grow a successful career or business. The units of competency have been selected in consultation with industry experts along with our facilitators who draw upon real-life case studies and examples to ensure the knowledge you gain is practical and applicable to the industry.
Students will have up to 12 months to complete this program.
