Course Overview

Is work, health and safety a responsibility in your role?

As a WHS officer, you are not only required to conduct safe work practices yourself, but also have a duty of care to ensure your workers follow correct safety policies and procedures. Unfortunately however, human error can cause incidents to occur.

Undertaking effective and fast WHS incident response is fundamental to successfully managing a legal complaint against your business and maintaining public image.

Join this full day comprehensive training course that will provide a mix of theory, case studies and exercises, which help you understand the foundations of work, health and safety law and ensure your business is compliant with WHS legal obligations.

This interactive and practical course covers the following areas:

  • Understanding the WHS legal framework
  • WHS and the legal system - courts, cases and defences
  • The importance of conducting timely incident response and investigation
  • Best practice tips for gathering and analysing evidence
  • The do’s and don’ts of media and PR relations
  • Insurance - what, who and why
  • Managing contractors and liability
  • The role of the Board and the levels of risk involved

Places are limited to allow the group time to discuss case studies and scenarios. Don't miss you place - book your seat today.
