WHS training courses

Two training courses have been developed for the model work health and safey legislation as part of the 2011 WorkCover Assist Grants Program:


WorkCover Small Business Assistance Grants 2011

The WorkCover Small Business Assistance Grants are a funding initiative of the NSW State Government and WorkCover NSW.

New work health and safety legislation will be introduced in NSW on 1 January 2012, and funding is being made available to assist small business to better understand and adopt key requirements arising from this change. Business Enterprise Centres, Regional Business Organisations and Professional Bodies whose members provide advice and support to small business are eligible to apply for funding to deliver training and education services about the new legislation to small business.  


WorkCover Assist Program 

The WorkCover Assist Program is a funding initiative of the NSW State Government and WorkCover NSW. The funding grants made available through this program will be used to assist key target groups to better understand and adopt key requirements arising from NSW work health and safety, injury management and workers compensation legislation.  


2011 WorkCover Assist Grants

In 2011 the WorkCover Assist Grants Program provided funding to external consultants to develop training resources on the high level changes to the model work health and safety (WHS) legislation. 

The two training courses on the model Work Health and Safety Act and Regulations are now available. The courses can be tailored to meet the needs of the workplace and may be delivered as separate modules or as an entire course.
