Managing WHS in the workplace

Konekt provide a range of established and customised courses to help you manage workplace health and safety.

Appropriate workplace behaviour workshop

Designed to help organisations meet their obligations, including those relating to the Fair Work Amendment Act 2012 anti-bullying measures. It covers what constitutes appropriate and inappropriate workplace behaviour – particularly working within the context of an organisation’s values and policy framework and from the perspective of promoting a positive workplace culture.

Contractor management training

Considers the various factors involved in managing contractors, particularly around WHS, throughout the contractor lifecycle from selection and induction, through to performance measuring and monitoring.

Developing a strong safety culture

Examines the behaviours, leadership traits and other factors that contribute to a strong safety culture, considers why systems, policies and procedures alone may not improve safety awareness, and understanding what drives people to engage with safety to develop more effective strategies to combat work related incidents and accidents.

Developing psychologically safe and healthy workplaces

Workshop provides a framework to help organisations not only comply with the Work Health & Safety obligations but also realise performance productivity, reputation, employee engagement, and retention benefits associated with a psychologically healthy workplace.

Ergonomic workstation training

A ‘train the trainer’ style course, providing participants with the skills and knowledge to conduct a basic workstation assessment for workers in their area, complete relevant documentation and know their limits, i.e. when to call in an expert to conduct the assessment.

Incident response and investigation training

Provides participants with the basic investigation and analysis skills needed to undertake workplace accident and incident investigations. With practical, realistic case scenarios, the training covers managing initial responses to incidents, developing investigation plans, collecting information and data, analysing information and data gathered to identify immediate and underlying causes and practical prevention measures, and compiling and communicating investigation reports

Risk management

A practical, workplace focused course providing participants with the knowledge and skills to identify hazards in their workplace, assess the level of risk and recommend/implement suitable control measures in consultation with relevant stakeholders.

WHS committees

An overview of the relevant WHS legislation, the roles and responsibilities of committee members and how to work effectively as a WHS committee, including consultation and communication, incident investigation and action plans.

WHS due diligence

Who is an officer under the WHS legislation and what do terms like due diligence and reasonably practicable really mean? This course defines what they mean in practical terms for the management of safety in your business. We look at case studies to demonstrate how you can meet your due diligence requirements on a day to day basis and outlines the issues you might need to consider.

WHS for managers and supervisors

Provides participants with a sound understanding of their responsibilities in relation to safe and healthy working environments, advice on hazard identification and risk management, and practical interactive activities focused on their own work environments.
