Supervisors and frontline leaders play a vital role in achieving and maintaining safety standards in the workplace. They are key advocates in promoting a culture in which safety is a priority and workplace injuries are not acceptable.
This assessment-only pathway is focused around a workshop aimed at demonstrating participants’ skills in key practices and principles of health and safety at an operational level, the communication of information and the application of risk management processes.
In undertaking this program, you will be given the opportunity to demonstrate, through practical and written tasks, that you have a clear understanding of the key competencies required for contract supervisors working at BHP WAIO sites.
This is a fast-tracked course designed for experienced supervisors, and therefore you must have a minimum of 12 months’ supervisory experience. See the entry requirements section for more information.
