Workplaces need qualified Health and Safety champions to guide others and foster a culture of health and safety practice. It’s a ‘must’ not ‘maybe’ that your Health and Safety focused people complete the NZ Certificate in Workplace Health and Safety Practice (Level 3).

Workplace Health and Safety knowledge should be used, talked about, and shared by everyone in your company.

While covering key Health and Safety strategies, your people learn to carry health and safety communication through their teams, and encourage others to speak up about health and safety issues.

This course ensures attendees lead from a health and safety viewpoint, with a good, strong communication component covered so key health and safety messages are heard in the workplace and are adopted.


Safer workplaces benefit from improved productivity and quality. Developing forward thinking health and safety leaders creates a positive safety culture, engaging team members at every level of your company.

This programme is aimed at people who are current or emerging health and safety champions/leaders and includes roles and responsibilities of Health & Safety Representatives.
