Business owners have responsibilities regarding health and safety in the workplace and many companies are now enlisting the help of occupational health and safety (OHS) professionals.
This diploma is suitable for those who currently manage or administrate OHS for their workplaces, or for those looking to gain the skills to allow them to step into this sort of role. The course assumes some existing knowledge of OHS practices, but aims to build on your current knowledge and formalise your current skills. Knowing and understanding the OHS laws enables businesses to form a strong foundation to achieve long-term success.
Open Colleges has teamed up with the National Safety Council of Australia to custom-design this course with OHS industry professionals and it is highly recommended if you are aiming to step up into an OHS supervisor or manager role.
The Diploma is part of the BSB07 Business Services Training Package, and is a nationally recognised qualification. You will learn to recognise and evaluate common health and safety risks in the workplace, investigate the causes of accidents and identify practical methods of prevention.
