Welcome to Safetyline Institute
The SafetyLine Institute provides learning materials and resources in key units of the national work health and safety qualifications. The aim of the Institute is to help you gain knowledge and skills to enable you to participate in improving work health and safety (WHS) at your workplace.
Each unit contains readings to be completed to gain the knowledge required for that subject. The key resource for each unit is the learning guide. It provides the framework to assist you to gain competence in the unit. The learning materials and resources from the Institute may be beneficial to those working in WHS role or 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.
If you wish to study informally online you can register free of charge to complete the online knowledge tests for each unit and have the results recorded. The tests are marked online and feedback is immediate. Results are recorded and confidential records are retained for you to view.
