Course Details

The Cert IV WHS course is a great starting point for anyone wanting to develop the skills and knowledge for Health and Safety in the workplace. The Cert IV WHS course is a nationally accredited program which is recognised across all industries.

Many workplaces are sending their staff to complete this course as a minimum benchmark for safety training. The type of staff who complete this training are:

  • Human Resource personnel
  • Construction company personnel for tenders / permits
  • Engineers
  • Mangers / supervisors
  • Business owners
  • Event staff
  • Security staff
  • Warehouse staff
  • Mining personnel
  • Return to work clients

Workplace injuries are the one of the biggest expenses for organisations and safety authorities. The SafeWork Australia report states "The total economic cost for the 2012–13 financial year is estimated to be $61.8 billion, representing 4.1 per cent of GDP for the same period." This is an astounding figure which is outdated by almost 4 years and truely demonstrates the importance of safe work practices.

Cert IV WHS training will ensure that trained staff have an understanding of obligations with the Work Health Safety Act 2011. This is a skills program aimed at developing the knowledge and skills of employees across the many Work Health Safety (WHS) functions.
