Brismark Business Services will continue to look for opportunities to provide all businesses and employees with skills and knowledge enhancement. If there is a course that is not on our current list, please contact us and let us know – it may be something other businesses are looking for as well.

Current courses include:

Basic Food Safety Awareness

Brismark offers businesses the chance to increase their employees understanding of Basic Food Safety by running this course. It is a great opportunity for employers to meet Food Safety Standards and increase the value of their business by increasing the skills & knowledge of their staff.
This course provides an introduction to food safety.

HACCP Certification and Re-Certification

Brismark offers access to nationally accredited HACCP Certification courses specific for the produce industry.  This course, along with the re-certification course, are delivered by a Registered Training Organisation and are compliant with the requirements of both the Coles and Woolworth Quality Assurance (WQA) Standards.

Forklift Licensing Theory and Assessment

The operation of high risk equipment (LF Forklift) requires the operator to be licenced.  A business, allowing an unlicensed person to operate a forklift, is in direct breach of the WHS legislation and could face serious fines.  Brismark have engaged a training provider to deliver the forklift training and assessment required to obtain a licence.

First Aid Training

As per Workplace Health & Safety Queensland’s First Aid Code of Practice 2004 – there must be access to trained first aid personnel sufficient for all workers and all shiftsBrismark offers access to Senior First Aid, CPR and refresher courses several times through the calendar year.

First Aid personnel must have a current ‘Senior First Aid’ qualification to comply with the First Aid Code of Practice.  This qualification is valid for three years from the date of issue.

(Please Note:  CPR training is a component of the Senior First Aid training and must be renewed yearly)

Manual Handling Training

Manual Handling is a term used that is mostly linked to lifting.  However, there are a number of tasks within the workplace that are classified as Manual Tasks and require what is defined as ‘ force exerted by a person’ other than just lifting. That is why it is important to ensure we don’t narrow our view and look further than just ‘lifting’ as a manual task.

This course focuses on a number of manual tasks that can lead to muscloskeletal injuries and how with some review and planning you can eliminate or reduce the risk.

This course is provided as either a general ‘public’ course or can be delivered on site at your business to cover all of your staff.
