WorkSafe provides full training in the classroom, online and in the field, as well as mentoring. The career pathway is the same for every trainee, regardless of prior experience. Every trainee does the same training towards being appointed as a Health and Safety Inspector and obtaining an Identity Card under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 (HSWA).
The training is very structured and all trainees are expected to start training at the same time. The training will be run over a twelve week period between Wellington and your home site (refer to the training schedule), and include workshops, e-learning modules, exams and ongoing manager facilitated structured practice. Therefore, you need to be able to commit to the start date and training dates advised as they can not be made flexible due to the nature of the training required for this role.
