About WHS

During our working years we spend over 30 per cent of our time with our noses to the grindstone, and even jobs with seemingly low risks can have hidden hazards. So if there’s one qualification that is valued by all kinds of businesses, it’s workplace health and safety (WHS).

WHS is not an old-fashioned problem. Sure, things have gotten better since 16 workers died building the Sydney Harbour Bridge back in the 1920s, but in the three years between 2008–09 and 2010–11, 123 construction workers died from work-related injuries. And it’s not just tradies up ladders who face danger at work – 74 out of every 1000 retail workers were injured between 2005 and 2006.

With the government regulators requiring employers to engage WHS-qualified workers, the demand for accredited professionals is growing. If you’re interested in risk management, implementing safety procedures or just upgrading or updating your knowledge of the legislation, then a current WHS course will give you a sound footing.

Potential WHS career outcomes include: Occupational Health Professional, Environmental Health Professional, Health Safety & Environment Coordinator, WHS Adviser, WHS Officer, WHS Manager, Compliance Manager, Senior WHS manager, Emergency Warden, First Aid Officer.
