Over the last 30 years Occupational Safety and Health Associates has been a recognised leading designer and presenter of results-oriented yet entertaining OHS training activities. Since becoming the first private provider to receive approval to conduct 5-day courses for supervisors and managers in 1987, OSHA has gained the reputation of being the go-to organisation for health and safety training.

We ensure that our training programs are practical and client-focused – and fun! We work with you in designing a customised program that will suit your organisation both in meeting its health and safety needs and in entertaining your employees along the way.

OSHA training promotes communication, co-operation and consultation. All of our trainers are highly qualified, they are experts in delivering a message that is clear and practical. They strive to make it as user-friendly and enjoyable as possible to ensure that your employees leave feeling positive and enthused about maintaining health and safety in your workplace.

We have a vast range of courses ranging from 2-hour briefings, to 5-day accredited courses.

We have conducted our training courses across Australia, in New Zealand, Canada, the United States, South America and in Europe (for participants from the UK, Holland, France and Belgium).

Here is what some participants in our training programs have said:

  • we were highly active and involved
  • possibly the best course I have ever attended (from a teacher!)
  • I learned a great deal
  • a better understanding of what to do and how to do it
  • a very enjoyable and worthwhile course
  • we had fun – and we learnt a lot.
