Industry Specific Module
Once you have been accepted into a workplace, you will need to ensure that you complete the Safe@Work Module that is specific to your chosen industry – surprisingly known as the “Industry Specific Module”.
You’ll need to use the Industry Specific Website to located your Industry by reading through the relevant guide.
- Building and Construction
- Health and Community Services
- Hospitality and tourism
- Metals and engineering
- Office and business administration
- Primary industry
If you’re unsure about your industry, think about the kind of work you will be doing or observing and link it to the one that relates the most. For example – you may be working with a lawyer – they would do a lot of office work, so you would pick office and business administration.
When you have read through all the information, you can attempt to complete the test, remembering to select your relevant industry when selecting the type of test.
