WHS / Asbestos Training
Workplace Health and Safety Training
Industry, Legislation and Education have different requirements when it comes to Workplace Health and Safety. While the purposes of these courses are different they are complementary, not contradictory.
Scorpion offer a range of training courses that are not part of the Nationally Recognised training curriculum.
These include WorkSafe WA approved programs and non-accredited programs that include specialist knowledge in the areas of Work Health & Safety or Asbestos.
While this industry training does not provide any direct credit status to nationally recognised training, it can provide an introduction to the domain of WHS. If you are interested in gaining a formal qualifcation in the specialist field of WHS please refer to the courses listed in Work Health & Safety Qualifications.
