WHS for Managers and Supervisors - Online
We approached BusinessSA for whole-of-workforce WHS training at both employee and manager level. As we are not a high-risk environment, we felt listened to and engaged with in the planning of material to be presented, and confident that our facilitator understood our needs. There was a small amount of adaptation required in consideration of the fact that our workforce is spread among different states, but this was incorporated without issue.
As far as the presentations themselves, the facilitator was engaging and made potentially dry material very relevant to our employees and their everyday situations. Staff feedback was very positive and has resulted in significant post-training engagement. Our reporting systems for risks and hazards have been used much more appropriately and staff understanding of why these are needed is increased.
We continue to value the partnership with BusinessSA training services. They are easy to engage with, handle logistics and administration smoothly and provide timely and cost-effective options to meet our needs. There is no question we will continue this engagement in the future and are already planning our 2023 requirements.
