Welcome to Pinnacle's 100% online Diploma Work Health and Safety (BSB51319) course.

Register below and get started immediately! No hidden fees.

This online course has been designed for people who are wanting to work in health and safety management field at an organisational level, such as WHS Director or expert Safety Advisor. When time is precious this course offers participants the option to study in their own time. Participants will learn how to review and audit health and safety management systems, apply continuous improvements, undertake high level risk management processes and develop corporate style policies and procedure to manage work health and safety processes.

This course is built around a fictitious organisation and you will be engaged through scenario and problem-based learning. You are recruited as the new Work Health and Safety Director and as part of the assessment you are immersed into the workplace to improve the organisations work health and safety practices. 

Pinnacle's Diploma program is not like the others that have you complete one unit at a time for the amount of units required of the qualification. We have built a course that is clustered into three modules. This means you are completing integrated assessment and not unit-based assessment like the other providers do. This approach allows you to complete a more simplified, holistic assessment process and not duplicate assessment tasks.
