Confined Spaces Training

 

If your job involves entering an enclosed or partially enclosed space, you may need to complete confined spaces training. Pipelines, vaults, manholes, and other confined spaces create additional risks due to atmospheric conditions. Minimise these risks with our one-day program.

 

Health and Safety Representative (HSR) Training

 

The Work Health and Safety Act gives employees the right to elect a worker to represent them in health and safety matters.

 

According to NT Worksafe, the elected worker must complete the health and safety representative (HSR) training to exercise the powers of an HSR. After completing the course, the HSR has the right to direct work to stop and issue provisional improvement notifications. More on HSR Training here.

Most manual handling injuries include strains and sprains due to repetitive tasks or improper lifting or pulling. However, improper handling may also result in back injuries and long-term health issues. Learn how to stay safe with our manual handling courses. We offer manual handling courses for construction, health care, office, and warehouse workers.

 

Traffic Control Training

 

If your job requires you to work on roads or around mobile machinery, such as construction equipment, you may need to complete traffic control course. We offer a comprehensive course with learning outcomes designed to minimise risks when working around motorists or vehicles. This is also a pathway to becoming a traffic controller.

 

White Card Training

 

The white card course Darwin covers the most common dangers on a construction site. It is a requirement for anyone entering or working in a construction zone.
Participants receive a statement of attainment. The white card is delivered via post within one to two months.

 

The NT white card is valid in other states and territories. After completing the white card course, workers may seek employment in the construction sector in other regions. First-time participants must enrol in face-to-face learning. Online training is only intended as a refresher for construction induction courses.

 

Working at Heights Training

 

Our working at heights unit of competency gives workers the skills and knowledge for reducing the hazards of working from dangerous heights.

 

Workers learn how to implement safety measures when heights involve a fall of two or more metres. This includes the use of personal protection equipment (PPE), engineering controls, and administrative controls.

 

Requirements for Enrolling in WHS Courses Darwin

 

Our training programs may come with prerequisites. In the construction sector, workers often need to complete the white card course before enrolling in other programs. Other requirements include proper photo identification and the ability to understand English.
