Course Description

This nationally recognised qualification aims to provide students with an understanding of the skills required to administer various work health and safety functions. Students will learn to interpret WHS legislation in order to produce a legal framework, establish and maintain WHS quality systems, lead and induct WHS staff and contractors, respond to WHS incidents and claims and learn how to introduce environmentally sustainable practices to the workplace.

Unlike other training providers, at Swinburne Professional we believe in the holistic development of each person and therefore our qualifications have been structured to not only provide the technical skills required but also to develop the leadership and management capabilities of each person relevant to the level of study that they are engaged in.
