BSB41419 Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety
The BSB41419 Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety is suitable for those undertaking a full-time health and safety role (such as a Safety Officer), who are expected to provide leadership and guidance to others regarding WHS matters. Students will learn to interpret legislation, identify workplace health and safety hazards, assess and control risks and consult with key stakeholders on WHS issues. At Training Services Australia, we believe there is nothing more important than the safety of your employees, contractors and workmates. Our commitment to quality ensures learners are fully equipped to meet the requirements of a modern workplace.
How long does the course go for?
The qualification is typically delivered over 14 days of face-to-face training, conducted in four separate blocks as shown below. In addition to attending the face-to-face training, participants will need to allow time to work on the post-course activities for each course.
What is the cost?
The total cost for attending all four modules of the BSB41419 Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety in Perth is $3,480 per person. However, payment is made on a module-by-module basis, where you only pay for the modules you attend.
Special rates can be negotiated for programs conducted by TSA on behalf of our clients, exclusively for their personnel.
Where and when is the course available?
Training Services Australia is currently redesigning this course in line with the new qualification BSB41419 as well as the new legislation which passed through the WA parliament in November 2020. We expect to start offering the new qualification from the second quarter of 2021. The Research and Apply WHS Legislation module has been scheduled to coincide with the commencement of this legislation which is expected mid 2021.

Is this course current?
Yes, the BSB41419 Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety was endorsed on 30 August 2019.
What are the assessment requirements?
The Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety is a competency-based qualification. This means that to attain the qualification, students need to do more than just attend the training. They also need to provide evidence that they have understood the training and applied it in the workplace. This requirement means that it’s not possible to complete all of the assessment requirements during the face-to-face training.
Note: As part of the process of checking students’ understanding during the training, and in an attempt to balance the assessment workload, we provide students with opportunities to generate some evidence for assessment during the face-to-face training.
Students are required to complete a set of assessment tasks for each module they undertake. Satisfactory completion of all assessment tasks is required before a credential can be awarded. Examples of the evidence typically requested from students as part of their assessment tasks include:
- Answers to knowledge-based questions and questions demonstrating the students’ application of the required knowledge
- Completion of case studies
- Descriptions by students of how they have responded to various scenarios in the workplace
- Completion of workplace-based tasks / projects which require students to apply the relevant competencies in the workplace
- Third party reports from students’ supervisors
The timeframe for completing the assessment for each module is four months. That is, students have four months after attending the training for Module 1 to submit the assessment for Module 1; four months after attending the training for Module 2 to submit the assessment for Module 2, and so on.
Students are encouraged to prioritise completion of their assessments ahead of attending further training, and should space their attendance at each module so that assessments don’t build up.
Extensions to assessment timeframes
TSA acknowledges that work and family pressures can make it challenging for some students to complete their assessments within the designated completion timeframes. Consequently, we provide extensions of up to 3 months where a formal request is received. Additional extensions are sometimes allowed in exceptional circumstances.
TSA does not generally grant extensions of more than 6 months from the original due date of the assessment. Students whose assessments are more than 6 months overdue and who still wish to complete their course may be required to re-attend the course or obtain one-on-one coaching to refresh their knowledge of the course content. Additional fees apply in these situations.
What units are in each module?
To obtain the Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety students must complete 10 units made up of:
- 5 Core units
- 5 elective units, of which:
- 3 units must be from Group A
- the remaining 2 units may be selected as follows:
