The Certificate III in Work Health and Safety is an entry-level qualification for those whose main job is not dedicated to WHS. Job roles relevant to this qualification include health and safety committee members and health and safety representatives. It is a nationally endorsed qualification that is part of the Business Services Training Package.
If you have completed an introductory WHS representative training course and you have asked the RTO to recognise your training by way of assessment then you have completed six of the required units of competence for this qualification.
To gain the full qualification you need to successfully complete ten (10) units. If you wish, you can contact a participating RTO with a view to seeking skills recognition (RPL) or coaching and mentoring to gain the full qualification or units of competency. Full details of the qualification are available at the Federal Government's training website.
The functions of workplace health and safety representatives map closely to the elements in six key WHS units of the Certificate III in Work Health and Safety. The SafetyLine Institute has produced an Integrated Assessment Tool for these six key WHS units, so that participating Registered Training Providers (RTOs) can more easily assist health and safety representatives and committee members to achieve the requirements of the six units. Participating RTOs who have licensed four or more competency units from the SafetyLine Institute have permission to use the Integrated Assessment Tool for these six key WHS units.
