04 Oct Why do I need a BSB41419 Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety?
We are often asked “why should I go to the trouble and expense of acquiring a BSB41419 Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety?” Once we get over our initial shock at the question, we tend to say things like; “Do you work with people? Are you responsible for people at work? Do you want to make sure you go home in the same state you were in when you attended work in the morning?”
From our perspective, Safety is the most important element of our lives, we all have an inbuilt self-preservation mechanism which, when faced with danger, allows us to make quick decisions to save ourselves. Some call it the fight or flight syndrome.
Becoming qualified is an extension of a mind-set from self to others and whilst there is a considerable amount of legislation to learn, it is a fun course where you will interact with like-minded people in similar level positions. Our courses are attended by a truly diverse group of learners from chefs, FIFO mining folk, building and construction personnel, manufacturing and distribution workers and consultants themselves.
We have heard of companies experiencing a reduction of circa $3million per year in their workers compensation premium due to increased safety awareness and the resultant introduction of safety measures. However notwithstanding this, as they say, what is a life worth to you? Surely it is more than the $1,500 it costs to become qualified at HBA Learning Centres.
