Just Simple and Accessible
When it comes to rural chemical safety a lot of it seems like common sense, still we know what they say about common sense… ‘It isn’t that common’. The other thing we need to consider is that if we are employing people, while they may not need to be accredited under any state legislation, it is important for workplace safety that they know how to handle and use chemicals in a safe and environmentally responsible manner.
Our NEW ‘Using Chemicals Safely’ Course neatly fills the gap in training that had existed for workplaces & organisations who understood that some employees and group members do not need accreditation or licensing, but who appreciate their duty of care and have been looking for an appropriate training solution.
Here at Smith and Georg, one of Australia’s leading chemical training organisations, we have been providing Online and Face to Face training to rural industries as well as local Government, Landcare and Indigenous groups, golf courses and turf growers, mining industry etc. for 20 years, and have just chalked up another first in the marketplace by launching Australia’s first ever online Level 2 ‘Using Chemical Safely’ Course. Sitting on our web-based training platform, the course is designed to be done easily in as little as five hours.
This new product provides employers, group coordinators and individuals with a cost effective and time efficient way to access Chemical Use training, where Level 3 Accreditation or State Licences are not required.
There is no longer the need to wait for a course to be held in your local area to access training to work safely with chemicals, thus avoiding the downtime, risk and expense of traveling to attend a course.
Instead course participants can jump online immediately, complete the course and receive a statement of attainment soon after completion. Unlike the Smith & Georg full accreditation courses, there are few maths components and only simple literacy requirements.
This course is perfect for people working in landscaping, green keeping, bushcare, local government, mining and primary industries. And for those who struggle, you can rest assured that you are fully supported by expert and friendly staff, with our free call number available to all course participants.
Launching in September the course is being offered at an early-bird price of $175.00 (GST Exempt) for the first 100 participants. After that it will be available at $197.00 with discounts applying to group bookings of 2 or more. I think we all agree, it’s a small cost for injecting some common sense into Rural Chemical Safety practices and removing the dangerous, and even deadly, consequences of mistakes.
BONUS – First 100 to enrol will get their course at $175, after that it will be $197 – to see if you are in the First 100 use the PROMO CODE ‘FIRST100’ in our online CHECKOUT – or ring us on 1800 991 985
