Safety and Health Representative 5 Day Introductory Course

WORKSAFE WA accredited. This course provides the knowledge and skills to perform the functions and role of an elected Safety and Health Representative.

What you will Learn:

  • Apply Western Australian Occupational safety and health legislation
  • Conduct inspections and investigations
  • Identify hazards and apply risk management processes
  • Communicate information on Heath and Safety matters
  • Effectively represent their work team on safety and health issues
  • Resolve conflict and issue Provisional Improvement Notices (PINs)

How you will Benefit

Develop your skills and knowledge to make a difference to safety in your workplace as an elected safety and health representative.

Not just mining! Some people express concern that the course might be all about mining safety. It isn’t! Our trainers are experienced in a wide range of industries. Examples are taken from the industries you work in so you can go back to your workplace with a clear picture of your role and responsibilities in the context of your work environment. That being said The Mines Safety Inspection Act is well covered with plenty of real world examples for those governed by this legislation.

Not boring! One thing past participants can agree on is that PPD training is not boring!  Classes are small and personalised. Classes are action focused so we don’t lecture you all day. You will get a chance to put new skills into practice and have a ‘hands on’ experience.
