Safety Skills Bundle for Non-Safety Managers
Three online self-paced courses | 3-5 hours to complete each course
Organisations with an embedded safety culture know that safety is every employee's responsibility. This skill set supports managers, and those with informal safety roles (such asfire warden), to understand and deal with work health and safety matters.
Course 1: Health and Safety Leadership
A key part of a leadership role is contributing to the strategies for meeting health and safety responsibilities. As workplace leaders, supervisors and managers are in a position to implement the processes designed to meet the health and safety obligations. To do this effectively supervisors and managers must be “Safety Leaders”.
Course 2: Creating a Safety Culture
What is a safety culture? A workplace culture that promotes the safety places a high level of importance on the beliefs, values and attitudes towards safety issues within the organisation. These values must be shared by most staff and put into practice on a daily basis – when this happens, making safety a priority becomes second nature.
Course 3: Understanding Health and Safety Incident Management
Organisations are responsible for ensuring workers are provided with a safe working environment across all industries and sectors. Therefore, it is important that staff understand their role in responding to incidents and how they can support a safe working environment and culture.

MiTraining groups together courses into categories of knowledge, abilities, and experience necessary to improve performance at work and describes them as skill sets.
These skill sets may group soft skills (interpersonal) or hard skills (technical) or a combination of both types into a cluster of courses. Courses are clustered in such a way that they can develop transferable skills (those that apply to many or different career fields), combine job specific employment skills, or target skills gaps in identified industries.
If a skill set is accredited and is part of MiTraining's scope, it will be clearly stated in the course information.
