This is a nationally approved vocational course that is recognised throughout Australia.
A safe workplace is a necessity. Work health and safety (WHS) qualified personnel are needed in almost every business, and this Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety is the perfect way to play a role in the safety of your workplace, whilst future-proofing your career.
This nationally recognised Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety course aims to provide you with an understanding of the work health and safety (WHS) skills required to administer various work health and safety functions. You will learn WHS laws, incident response, managing claims, and hazard identification. The Swinburne Professional approach is to not only deliver the technical skills you need to be a qualified WHS professional, but also to develop the leadership and management skills needed to do the job.
This qualification focuses on real world, relevant global contexts. It is a practical program with projects and assignments you can integrate into your existing role or organisation. Undergoing the program gives you skills and tools you can use immediately and encourages you to think differently. Additionally, the qualification fully aligns to future trends in leadership capabilities.
Who should attend?
This qualification is suitable for junior WHS personnel seeking to add to their skills, existing WHS professionals who need a formal qualification, and those seeking careers as WHS consultants and contractors.
