SAFE Companies Training
A SAFE Companies training course is required by companies working toward industry recognized SAFE Certification. By attending a SAFE Companies course, you will learn about the foundation of a good safety system, including the important policies and procedures your company should have in place to protect workers and the business itself. The course also works through components of the SAFE Companies audit, helping you to understand what is required to become SAFE Certified. A number of different courses are offered depending on a company’s size and history with the SAFE Companies program.

Supervisor Training
Two streams of supervisor training courses are available through the Council. One stream caters to any industry supervisor; the other stream is aimed at individuals working specifically with fallers. These programs assist supervisors to understand their legal obligations, and help them to engage more effectively with their workers.
