What is the Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety about?

This is a standard level of training for safety officers. It is comprised of 10 units of competency – five of which are core units (or compulsory) and five elective units (which allows some range to match your experience or interests to particular units). There are no pre-requisites to enrol in the Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety.

The core units put a focus on the fundamentals of Work Health and Safety responsibilities: starting with the importance of complying with laws, to contributing to identifying, managing and controlling risks and hazards. The success of Work Health and Safety programs is to be found in the adoption of WHS practices by the general workforce. This knowledge is covered in two core units of competency before also addressing the importance of rendering assistance when responding to WHS incidents.

Examples of Position Titles relevant to Certificate IV level work:

  • Work Health and Safety Advisor
  • Health Safety & Environment (HSE) Advisor
  • WHS Officer
  • WHS Coordinator
  • HSE Coordinator
  • Safety Health & Wellbeing Officer

Work Health and Safety Industry

WHS roles within any organisation are of primary importance since work health and safety impacts both the productivity and welfare of every individual. With the WHS industry in Australia forecast to grow 20% by 2020, and with an average annual salary of just over $100,000, it’s definitely full of career opportunities.

Organisations are also becoming increasingly aware of their legislative obligations surrounding duty of care and due diligence. This awareness has resulted in many new and exciting (and lucrative) career opportunities within the WHS sector.

You will find a lot more information in our WHS Industry Report.
