WorkSafe Plan: How to become a WorkSafe plan assessor

This page is for: 

An organisation seeking a WorkSafe Plan Certificate of Achievement must engage an independent WorkSafe Plan Assessor to complete and submit the assessment.

To be qualified as an assessor, you must:

  • have minimum certification as a principal or lead WHS auditor for WHS systems, e.g. Exemplar Global (RABQSA), IRCA or an equivalent body
  • be qualified and experienced in work health and safety (WHS)
  • be independent of the organisation being assessed
  • successfully complete the department’s WorkSafe Plan online information session
  • submit your current WHS auditor certification to WorkSafe to be recognised as a qualified WorkSafe Plan Assessor.

Online information session

The WorkSafe Plan information session provides information on how to complete a WorkSafe Plan assessment and submit an application for a WorkSafe Plan Certificate of Achievement. Completing this information session is mandatory for anyone wishing to become a WorkSafe Plan assessor.
