We have years of experience in delivering this WHS course – and safety courses in general – across the dynamic range of industries we serve. We have nurtured individuals and provided expert guidance at an intellectual level as well as mentoring support as part of the Cert III WHS -based programs we run. If you work in industries or jobs that have a medium to high risk profile  such as Construction, Transport, Logistics, Mining, Oil and Gas, Exploration industry sectors you will find the course run by us extremely valuable.

Everyone is. However, some duties sit naturally at at an organisational level for example, the purchase of machinery and equipment to meet key safety and risk minimisation goals. However, it is not a one-sided obligation, because you all have a responsibility to proactively raise issues or potential hazards around current and potential equipment. There is much nuance within WHS across a whole organisation and this course will help anchor this for each student. There is an excellent Overview of Safety ToolKit Fundamentals Overview at: https://www.worksafe.qld.gov.au/safety-fundamentals/home which will help you and your organisation understand more including commitment, managing risks, consultation, reporting, worker capability, working environment, worker compensation & recovery.

All work has some risk associated. This is an entry level course and will pre-arm you with an appreciation of WHS as you work in your current role or for a future role. Part of our course intent, is the importance of worker consultation at each step of the risk management process creation, education and ensuring workers really understand risks and control measures. At Harness, we think about all these elements as part of our approach to this Cert III WHS qualification.
