Courses and Training

Instruction, training and supervision of staff are essential components in the implementation and continued improvement of safe working practices. Staff need to know how to do their job and how to do it safely. This includes ensuring their own safety and that of others (eg. students and volunteers). Staff also need to know the expectations of their supervisor (e.g. principal/manager) and the department in terms of the performance of their role.

Staff will undertake a range of instruction and training during their career, beginning with induction.


Health, Safety and Wellbeing Induction is mandatory for all staff and is to occur annually. The primary aim of the induction is to provide new and continuing staff with an important overview of health, safety and wellbeing policies, procedures and practices in the Department.

Health, Safety and Wellbeing Induction is to be completed either online OR may be delivered face-to-face using the Health, Safety and Wellbeing Induction Powerpoint Presentation. This presentation requires users to insert local workplace details to maintain the relevancy of training and completion of the included assessment. It is NOT necessary to complete both induction packages.
