Project Description

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.

Our training is available through face-to-face delivery or our LDN-i platform, a live, facilitator-led, interactive training environment over an internet-connected computer or device. We can also customise this program for your workplace and industry and deliver it anywhere in Australia.

This program is also available as a public program though Workplace Dimensions. Find out more and book upcoming dates here >>

OUR delivery FORMAT

Eight days of training is broken into 4 x 2 day modules, plus a workplace task per module.

Participants can undertake the full qualification, or choose the module of their choice and gain the competencies covered in that module. This program is designed for adult participants who are already or have recently been employed. Assessments are open book questions, practical activities and projects designed to be incorporated into their day to day job rather than adding to their workload.

Participants have up to 12 months to complete the qualification or the individual modules.

ABOUT THE program modules

To attain the BSB41419 Certificate IV in Work Health & Safety, participants must be deemed competent in 10 units of competency (five core, five elective) over an eight-day program, plus workplace tasks.

The eight days may be delivered in consecutive days or in four x two-day modules with gaps between each module to allow participants to practice skills learned back at their workplace.

Our 8 day public program allows for enrolment in either the full qualification or into the individual modules.
