Work Health and Safety (WHS) consultation is a legal requirement. Consultation may take a number of forms, including through formal safety committees and more informal safety teams. The aim of this course is to provide the information and skills to enable safety team and committee participants to conduct productive and well-organised Health and Safety meetings.

The Health and Safety Committee’s role is to work with the PCBU to bring about improvements in the workplace. In a number of organisation this objective is not met due to a lack of leadership and commitment at all levels in the committee.
