Every manager wants to develop the 'right' Work Health and Safety (WHS) culture for their business but many struggle to describe what that culture would actually look like. This program is designed to provide an introduction to the process of shaping the culture of an organisation which forms a critical part of ensuring excellent WHS performance and the ongoing viability of your business.


Excellence in safety management performance is critical to the sustainability of organisations across all sectors. The success of safety management systems depends largely on the quality of organisational leadership and the prevailing safety culture that cuts across the whole organisation.

This program is designed to build the knowledge and skills required to shape an effective safety management system, to engage workers (including contractors), into that system and to grow a strong, unified safety culture.
