Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety Melbourne

A Formal Qualification Made Relevant For Modern Organisations


The Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety is suited to those working as supervisors, WHS personnel, and workers in other WHS-related roles who manage risks effectively, apply relevant WHS laws, and contribute to WHS within the workplace.
As well as assuming responsibility for their own performance, individuals at this level provide leadership, guidance and support to others. They also have some responsibility for organising and monitoring the output of their team.
Our formal OHS programs are designed to provide the participants with the opportunity to experience the frameworks and concepts in a facilitated learning environment whilst drawing on real, workplace conditions.
