Onsite WHS Committee Training


Did you know that over 107,335 individuals experienced at least one work-related injury last 12 months? SafeWork Australia Key WHS Statistics Australia published  in their report that 107,335 serious claims are finalised with 5.8 weeks median time lost and $11,300 median compensation paid. While some people take as long as 11 days, others don’t return to work after the injury.

As an employer, business owner , it is your responsibility to look after their safety and health. These can be done not only through policy making and implementation, but also training of your health and safety committee.

Training on Work Health and Safety for all individuals responsible, is necessary for compliance with laws concerning work safety. Caring for your employees comes in many forms, and one of those is through onsite and online WHS training.

Why Work Health and Safety Committee is Important?

Safety is perpetually a work in progress, which is why it’s important to have individuals who are dedicated to ensuring that it’s being upheld at all times, in all areas of the organisation.

This is what the Work Health and Safety Committee does— they facilitate meaning conversations on workplace safety procedures such that each worker is accounted for and every concern is adequately represented. Recognising that safety is also a collaborative work between management and employees, the WHSC is built to catch workers’ complaints on existing WHS systems and coordinate such feedback to higher management for reform and further assessments.

WHSC is an incredibly important part of any organisation, especially those with high-risk environments such as construction, mining, and electrical industries because only does it maintains smooth communication between ranks, it also functions to improve workers’ quality of life within the company.

Work Health and Safety Committee Training

Because the committee plays a crucial role in the overall health of an organisation, it is equally important that each committee member is qualified to perform their functions. Hence the need for a Work Health and Safety Committee Training.

The training is a day-long course which can be held online, onsite, or in a classroom setting is consists of both conceptual and practical applications of national WHS standards. It discusses effective communication and negotiation, team building techniques, and laws covering the obligations of employers towards their constituents’ well-being.

Elevate WHS Committee Training with HBDI Assessment

Training is one way of building the efficacy of WHS committees, but another approach comes in a much rather quick and simple survey. It’s called the Hermann Brain Dominance Instrument (HBDI) and it measures people’s inherent thinking style.

HBDI is developed from the Whole Brain Thinking Model coined by Ned Hermann which claims that although people have a preference, awareness of it can encourage them to adapt other thinking styles when the situation calls it. There are 4 different thinking preferences color coded into blue, yellow, green, and red.

Why WHSC Training & HBDI Consultation Work Well Together?

HBDI can be analysed in teams like WHS Committees and it’s a valuable source of data because it provides an idea of how a team’s compound thinking ability can be enhanced and trained for success. For instance, if members share a common dominance for quadrant A, then they know that they can trust each other for a thorough and approach to tasks that may amount to high-quality outputs. However, on areas which they may find lacking such as in quadrant C, perhaps, they will see to it make an active effort to understand and honor each other’s feelings more.

Simply put, an HBDI profile for WHS Committees will help members leverage their collective strength while paying more attention to what each can do to fill in each other’s lack and ultimately ensure the committee’s success.
