Course Overview

Safety and Health Committees (SHCs) allow businesses to work together with workers on safety and health matters. The main functions of a committee are to facilitate cooperation in developing and carrying out measures to improve the safety and health of workers. Not all members of organisations are aware of, or understand the purpose, functions or responsibilities of the SHC. After attending this training they will, as our course is focused on detailing those responsibilities and how to form and function as a safety and health committee.

I would just like to say a thank you for all your positive feedback and advice on my submissions while completing this Diploma course. I can honestly say that I have enjoyed the whole process at Pinnacle and the way the course is set up, it actually makes the learner feel like they are a part of a real workplace i.e. the “ABC Corp”. Every scenario has been realistic with challenging but very relevant assignments. All in all I would not hesitate to recommend Pinnacle to anybody who wants to complete WHS qualifications.
