Online learning

South Australia has new work health and safety laws. While this information remains relevant, the references to legislation may not be current.

Web-based activities and tests offer a convenient alternative to expensive classroom work health and safety (WHS) training. These tests offer your students many advantages:

  • available from the Internet
  • visually-based for easy learning
  • can be scheduled at any time.

Passport to Safety is an online learning and test program targeted at young people about to enter the workplace for the first time.  Thanks to the support of our generous sponsors this program is available FREE to South Australian schools. Once completed students will receive their "passport" or certificate.
