Regardless of the industry, leaders have a legal obligation to keep people safe and therefore WHS qualified people are needed in almost every business.

Designed for those working as supervisors, WHS personnel, or workers, the BSB41419 Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety provides the skills and knowledge for those in any WHS-related role to manage risks, apply relevant WHS laws, and to contribute to WHS within the workplace.

This safety course is available through our LDN-i platform, a live, facilitator-led, interactive training environment over an internet-connected computer or device. This is not a pre-recorded online program – it is the same experience as our in-person programs.

Program starts July 13th 2023.

This is not a pre-recorded online program – it is the same experience as our highly interactive face-to-face programs.

PROGRAM FAQ’s

While there are no educational prerequisites for this course, it is a program for people who work in in a leadership or supervisor capacity, regardless of which industry.  English language proficiency and literacy skills are needed to complete the course in the required time frame. The program also requires competency in using a computer or tablet devices for research.

A good level of numeracy is necessary to complete the learning and assessment activities in this program.

Using the cloud-based interactive platform Zoom, you can gain your qualification with a live facilitator, in real-time, with a group of other participants, via computer from anywhere in the world with an internet connection and a device with a microphone and camera.

We don’t offer pre-recorded online programs or self-paced programs where you receive the materials and work it out for yourself. That’s not an effective way to learn and it’s not how we work. Workplace Dimensions are experts in live training. Our program simulates real face-to-face training, with expert facilitators, peers and all the activities, discovery learning and discussions you’d experience if you were working in a training room together. We offer the same experience of our face-to-face programs, delivered via computer. You’ll even get morning, afternoon, and lunch breaks – though, you’ll have to supply your own muffins and coffee!

We supply workbooks, handouts and assessments via post to your home or workplace. We look after logistics in the same meticulous way we do with our face-to-face programs.

The Zoom software only requires an internet connection and works cross-platform on all PC and Mac desktop computers, devices and smartphones that have a camera and microphone, which most devices already have.

The Zoom software platform is free for you to use and is available either in-browser (through Chrome, Firefox etc.), as a downloadable app for computers and devices, or can be integrated into your company intranet.

Zoom also encrypts all content at the application layer using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit algorithm, and we use password-protected sessions to enhance this security.

We have technical support resources to seamlessly support you if you are not familiar with working with this type of technology.

If you need support setting up or using Zoom, we have a team member available running weekly Wednesday Zoom testing sessions (or by appointment) to ensure you are confident with using Zoom before the program starts.
