Australia's Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) training company, AlertForce (AF) has succeeded in winning gold in the "Best in OHS" category for a program they designed in conjunction with leading content provider LexisNexis, a leading provider of content and technology solutions, to provide Work Health and Safety (WHS) modules.

The partnership successfully combined AlertForce's OHS training expertise with LexisNexis respected and renowned legal content. This team produced the successful LexisNexis Online Training — WHS modules, which have since been awarded the Gold recognition for the program's outstanding and quality design.

The modules designed by AlertForce sought to provide participants with the ability to identify and apply crucial aspects of the Model Work Health and Safety act. Their success in these aspects resulted in AlertForce earning a distinction from which acknowledges that AlertForce's course design is unparalleled in both quality and accessibility.

Our courses allow people to learn at their own pace in a convenient and cost effective way.

Together both organizations specially designed three interactive online training modules to allow participants the ability to engage in the modules at their own convenience. The training modules were written by the employment specialist law firm Harmers Workplace Lawyers.

The following modules were offered:

  • Course 1 — Health and safety duties
  • Course 2 — Health and safety representation in the workplace
  • Course 3 — Health and safety consultation in the workplace

Each course required less than an hour to complete depending on the individual user and time spent exploring additional resources.

Each course was available for purchase individually allowing participants to engage in the modules according to their own schedule.
