What is the Health & Safety Supervisors Course?

The Health and Safety Supervisor course is an excellent management programme that helps to equip H&S supervisors, coordinators or managers with an all-round holistic knowledge of health and safety, and to provide the necessary skills to effectively manage their health and safety systems and teams.

The OHS Act makes reference to “Supervision” in section 8 'the employers duties' and hence the creation of this H&S program. The Health and Safety Supervisor course covers the H&S Representative, Accident Incident Investigation, OHS Act and Risk Assessment courses all in one. The objective is to equip the supervisor with confidence and a structured approach to handing health & safety matters within the organisation.
