Welcome to the Leading WHS for the Disability Sector training package.

National Disability Services has developed this package with funding under the WorkCover Assist Program, and with the assistance of OHS Solutions and Anvil Media, and we gratefully acknowledge their support. We also thank the many members who provided input and feedback during the development of this package.

The package is designed primarily for Managers and Supervisors in the disability sector. However, workers may also benefit from specific modules. Module topics are:

  • Module 1 – Introduction
  • Module 2 – Legislative Framework
  • Module 3 – WHS Management System
  • Module 4 – WHS Consultation
  • Module 5 – Risk Management
  • Module 6 – Management of Specific Risks
  • Module 7 – Injury Management
  • Module 8 – WHS Training
  • Module 9 – Records and Information Management
  • Module 10 – Continuous Improvement

Each module (excluding Module 1) includes an assessment. When you have completed all the modules a certificate will be issued to your email address.

Throughout the modules, you may find links to other websites. These pages will open in a new window. To return to the module, simply close the new window (by clicking the X in the top right corner), or click on the Leading WHS in the disability sector tab.
