Are you in a Safety Officer or Health and Safety Representative Role, a Leading Hand, Supervisor, Manager or Coordinator looking for a nationally recognised qualification? Or perhaps you’re looking to shift your career into health and safety?

The BSB41415 Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety is a nationally recognised qualification which will teach you how to identify hazards in your workplace, assist with responding to incidents, assess and control risk and consult on work health and safety issues.

A key part of a Safety Officer’s role is the ability to support a business’ operation with technical ‘know how’. This program covers the broad work, health and safety skills and technical capability that you’ll need to apply across a wide range of situations, workplaces, and systems.

The program focuses on developing the capacity required to apply a variety of solutions to unpredictable problems, to coach and guide people in the use of a safety system, and advanced skills to evaluate data from a variety of sources.

 It will also teach you how to promote team effectiveness and build positive workplace relationships.

You may be eligible to receive this qualification based on the work you’ve already done. And, you could do it without having to complete any additional study.
