The WHS Statutory Supervisor Course includes the WHS Risk Management Training that is specifically related to the Schedule 26 Statutory Supervisors work safe requirements within WHS (Mines) Regulations (WA) 2022. So, this is the right training for you if you are, or plan to be, working in a Statutory Supervisor Position in Western Australia. 

At Harness, we believe that this training should be as context relevant to your work place as possible which is why we have ensured the available resource industry training unit which is part of the Work Safe WA list of training forms a key foundation for this training instead of relying on standardised WHS training units that suits a more general industry appeal.

The Statutory Supervisor training content has two primary areas of focus firstly, training you with a guide to the whole risk management process in relation to the resources industry and secondly, learning and understanding about how to apply that into and within the WHS policies, procedures and programs of your workplace. The course engages content from the resource industry including relevant legislation and codes from across Australia to help enhance your learning. Harness trainers help leverage your own work experiences to ensure a rich WHS learning opportunity with an RTO that has an enviable reputation for training in the medium to high risk industries.
