Qualification Description

This qualification applies to individuals working in a work health and safety (WHS) role who provide a broad range of technical knowledge and skills, and have some limited responsibility for the output of others.

The qualification applies to those working as supervisors, WHS personnel, and workers in other WHS-related roles who manage risks effectively, apply relevant WHS laws, and contribute to WHS within the workplace in known or changing contexts with established parameters.


Assessments will be based on the 10 units of competency set out in the above.

You will be assessed through a combination of knowledge and practical assessments that you can complete in your workplace.

Knowledge questions are designed to allow you to demonstrate your underpinning knowledge, whilst the practical assessments are designed to demonstrate competency in conducting tasks relating to the individual units set out in this qualification.

A portfolio of documentary evidence of similar tasks to those set out in the practical assessments might be useful in applying for recognition of prior learning (RPL). Contact the Academy to request a consultation with one of our assessors to see if you might be a suitable candidate for the RPL process.
