BSB41419 Certificate IV in Work Health & Safety.

The BSB41419 Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety program is for those working as supervisors, WHS personnel, or workers in any WHS-related role who manage risks, need to apply relevant WHS laws, and contribute to WHS within the workplace.

Regardless of the industry, leaders have a legal obligation to keep people safe and therefore WHS qualified people are needed in almost every business.
