JCU’s Work Health and Safety Unit offers a range of training programs with the aim of providing useful and relevant health and safety related skills and knowledge; to enable staff to participate and contribute more effectively as a member of the JCU community and to assist in driving a positive safety culture at the University.
Instruction, training and supervision of staff are essential components in the implementation and continued improvement of safe working practices. Staff need to know how to do their job and how to do it safely. This includes ensuring their own safety and that of others (eg. students and volunteers). Staff also need to know the expectations of their supervisor (e.g. manager) and the work unit in terms of the performance of their role.
Please contact email@example.com to inquire about training or for further information about scheduled training courses.
