Workplace health and safety TRAINING

All workplaces can be impacted by extreme weather, and whether it’s heatwaves, bushfires, smoke, flooding or cyclones – extreme weather events are becoming more common and more severe as our climate changes.

No matter where you work, it’s really important to know your workplace health and safety rights in these situations, what kinds of actions you can take, and what the responsibilities of your employer are too. 

This training is relevant for every worker, in every job.

By the end of this training you will:
  • Understand and feel confident articulating that employers are responsible for controlling all known workplace risks to workers health and safety, including any stemming from extreme weather and climate change
  • Feel confident you can cease work, on paid time, whenever there is a serious and imminent risk to health and safety
  • Be able to identify and recognise the impacts of extreme weather and climate change on workers and workplaces
  • Begin to brainstorm actions you can take in your industry and workplaces around extreme weather and climate change
