    The Safety Passport Program

    The SmartMove Safety Passport is an initiative by WorkSafe to ensure that young workers entering the workplace for the first time, (workplace learning and school-based traineeships/apprenticeships), have been exposed to pre-requisite WHS knowledge prior to engaging in a work placement. The Safety Passport program has been designed to address the national competency unit BSBWHS201.

    There are eight online educational lessons that make up the WorkSafe SmartMove Safety Passport program. Each lesson contains detailed information and instructions, online activities and downloadable/printable worksheets. Each lesson also has a separate student and educator introduction page, with the student page containing a link to the relevant assessment tool and Passport certificate for that lesson, and the educator page comprising of various supplemental lesson plans relevant to the lesson topic.

    It is highly recommended that all lessons are completed in sequential order. Completion of each lesson is recorded in the Safety Passport.
