for schools and colleges
OSHA offers to Victorian schools and colleges a wide range of OHS courses ranging from 2-hour briefings, one day HSR Refreshers & Overview workshops to 5-day Worksafe-Approved courses.

We offer discounts off our course fees for participants from schools and colleges and other organisations in the Victorian Education system.

We are approved by WorkSafe Victoria to conduct our approved OHS programs without the normal face-to-face requirements.  (For public courses, we use either the new (security-upgraded) Zoom platform to conduct these courses.  For in-house courses conducted for specific organisations, we can conduct the course using the virtual conferencing platform preferred by the client.)

WorkSafe says this is only a temporary arrangement due to the COVID-19 pandemic and that approved delivery strategies and AQF competency requirements must continue to be met.

  • In accordance with sec. 68 of the OHS Act, HSRs are able to choose the course they wish to attend in consultation with their employer, including whether they participate in connected, real time delivery or face-to-face learning when it resumes after the COVID-19 period.
  • HSRs should not be expected to complete their usual workplace duties before or after they have attended training.
  • If a participant does not have the appropriate training resources, IT infrastructure and ergonomic work station prior to training commencing, we advise participants to defer attendance until face-to-face training is available.
  • HSRs need to be comfortable with their learning environment and participate in HSR training away from any workplace distractions.

Our Health & Safety Representative Initial OHS course is a practical and interactive course led by highly experienced trainers/ consultants.

We have provided practical OHS assistance to many schools, colleges and other organisations - we can 'practice what we preach'!

Is it time for your HSRs to do their annual WorkSafe Vic-Approved OHS Refresher Course? Perhaps you want a 1 day OHS Overview course?
This interactive 1-day workshop provides an overview of new and/or recent developments with the Victorian OHS legislation and reviews the role, powers and rights of  HSRs.

The OHS Management Nominee is an important role.
This practical, interactive 2-day workshop is for people new to the role and for more experienced participants who have been fulfilling the role for some time.

The workshop provides Management OHS Nominees with clear practical strategies on what to do and how to do it!
