Work Health & Safety (WHS)
What WHS training do I need to complete?
Prior to commencing your first assignment, you will need to complete and pass the relevant WorkPro WHS modules online. Your consultant will email you the details to access these assessments. You will also be required to sign our Charterhouse WHS policy via the WorkPro training system.
On the first day of your assignment, you will receive a site/work specific WHS induction from your supervisor or WHS officer at the client site. On completion, please sign our one-page WHS induction checklist to confirm the induction has taken place; a copy of this checklist should then be emailed the same day to your consultant.
What should I do if I have any WHS concerns or injure myself at work?
If you identify a possible hazard in the workplace, experience a near miss at a client site, or injure yourself at work, you should immediately report it to your supervisor or the WHS officer at the client site, as well as your consultant or Group HR Manager at Charterhouse.
