Our safety consultants provide a range of WHS training courses aiming to minimise risk in the workplace and empower staff. The WHS/OHS training programs are fully customised to suit the individual safety needs of your organisation. Our safety courses and training programs cover a range of workplace health and safety areas, including:
Facilitated by WHS/OHS specialists and allied health professionals, our WHS training includes:
Designed to provide an overview of the latest WHS legislation and responsibilities to make sure your business is meeting its statutory obligations.
Workplace inspections help prevent work-related injury and illness and are an important part of an organisation’s workplace safety management system. They are an important tool to help prevent risk. Inspections are usually carried out by WHS representatives within organisations or WHS practitioners, such as our consultants.
Investigating incidents to prevent reoccurrence is an important part of a WHS Management System. We explore:
We help train the investigator to ensure incidents are accurately recorded, running through the Who, What, When, Why, Where and How prompts to help gather key information.
We train safety committee members, managers, supervisors and others with safety responsibilities on a range of WHS requirements covering such topics as risk management, incident investigation, risk prevention training and WHS legal compliance.
We carry out onboarding training to ensure you’re able to enjoy the most efficiencies from the software and to help you to get started with automating your WHS Management System.
We train those responsible for WHS to carry out workplace risk assessments so that they are able to identify hazards
and assess risk, so that these risks can be controlled. We also cover how to continually check, and improve on, the effectiveness of such control measures over time. We cover:
We create training programs to mitigate risks specific to each work environment. Where one workplace may eliminate lower back injury through ergonomics training, due to seated postures, another may require manual task training.
Here’s 2 examples of the training we can provide to employees to help them to adopt a proactive approach to their safety:
Workplace Ergonomics Training: Our Workplace Ergonomics Training arms employees with the information they need to create a better match between themselves, the work they perform and the equipment they use. Tailored to the ergonomic needs unique to each workplace, this training aims to boost health, minimise the risk of injuries common to a workplace, boost productivity and morale and decrease staff turnover and absenteeism. Designed and presented by our team of physiotherapists, occupational therapists and exercise physiologists, our training aims to foster an ergonomics ethos at all levels of an organisation.
For example, our workplace ergonomics for the office environment training:
Educates employees on power positions - the optimal positions in which to complete tasks.
Manual Task Training: Our allied health professionals deliver Manual Task Training Workshops to a range of organisations nationally. As work varies greatly, our allied health professionals take time to assess the physical demands unique to each role and each workplace. Training is then tailored to cover the impact of duties specific to each work situation, with particular attention paid to impacts on employee musculoskeletal functioning.
We tailor training, led by PeopleSense by Altius psychologists, to the specific mental health needs of a workplace. We run sessions on Bullying and Harassment Awareness, Workplace Wellbeing and Resilience Training.
WHS training creates a safety culture and supports employee morale in workplaces small and large. Training that pays attention to preventing risks that are particular to a workplace is essential and that is why our workplace training is tailored to suit the needs of a workplace.
WHS training should be included as part of employee onboarding processes as well as regularly to all employees to reinforce WHS practices and procedures.
Training should be adapted and carried out if there are any changes to the work environment, new risks or hazards are identified, or there are changes to the way in which work is carried out. Changes in WHS legislation or to the management of your safety system may call for specialist WHS training.
An Altius Group WHS consultant is able to advise and recommend the types and frequency of training to deliver to keep your employees safe and well.
A comprehensive Safety Management System will help you keep a track of the training needs of your workplace. This safety framework should:
Conversations with employees and learnings from incident reports will also be a valuable source of information to guide training.
