Health and Safety Inductions and Training

Health and Safety Training

Employees may require health and safety training and licensing specific to the work activities they conduct or a legislative role they hold at ECU. The Health and Safety Training Guideline outlines the requirements for identifying health and safety training, licensing and competency requirements.

The Health and Safety Training Needs Analysis template may be used to identify and document health and safety training and licensing requirements and should be discussed with individual workers as part of the MPS review process.

Hazard Risk Management Training

If you would like to complete online Health and Safety (HS) Risk Management training please contact to arrange this training. The online training module will provide you with a basic understanding of the HS risk management process. By the end of the module you should be able to:

  • Understand the importance of risk management in preventing and controlling hazards in the workplace;
  • Identify and participate in the key steps in the risk management process;
  • Apply hazard identification techniques;
  • Assess the level of risk associated with hazards;
  • List in order the steps in the Hierarchy of Control (HoC);
  • Understand that you need to use ECU's risk management database - Riskware - to record your HS Hazard Risk Assessment (HRA) or view your School/Centre Hazard Risk Register (HRR).

You should allow approximately 30 minutes to complete this module. At the end of the module you will be asked to undertake an online assessment to check your understanding of the key concepts presented.
