WHS Risk Management Course

Why do this course?
It is the primary duty of every business, organization, corporation, or undertaking to manage health and safety risks in the workplace. 
Directors and CEOs must ensure the health and safety management system exists, operates, and is reviewed as necessary to ensure the business is meeting it's overarching legal duty.
Directors must identify, assess and control or eliminate risks, including non-physical risks. They utilize their line managers, supervisors, and team leaders to gather information to make decisions and supervise staff on new or renewed control measures. All staff, including contractors, and workplace visitors must follow the measures, rules, and protocols of the WHS management system that are in place to protect all persons from harm at the workplace. Everyone in a workplace has to know their role in the WHS risk management process.
