Most engaging HSR Training Course

Rated 5.0 out of 5
2 months ago

This course is well structured, covers all the necessary material to meet legislation/standards. Peter is very engaging, practical, experienced and keeps us actively involved during the session with recent case studies- had no troubles with staying awake. Definitely not death-by-powerpoint and not overly focusing on irrelevant material, made sure to be based on the most recent legislation and evidence base (even included the psychosocial issues).

One of if the the best training course

I just finished the HSR level 1 course and have nothing but praise. Without a doubt, it was one of the best courses I have done. The layout and teacher methods are easy to understand, and the information is retained. His wealth of knowledge from work in many fields provides a number of examples to help give context to the course information. I will not only gladly return to do level 2 but also use Paragon for my other course in the near future.

Just finished my HSR level 1 through Paragon with Peter, I found the whole 5 days to be very educational and informative, honest can say I learn a huge amount of legal liabilities that I had no idea about, Peter was very professional in every way and delivered his content in an all inclusive way, great interaction and involvement with all his students, thanks again Peter for sharing all your knowledge, looking forward to doing level 2 with you in the near future

A WHS course where you’ll actually learn something and be required to think!

I won’t lie, when I was finally forced to go and do my HSR training I shopped based on location. Going to a pub near home seemed like the best idea so I enrolled with Peter at Paragon without any thoughts that I might find the topic enjoyable.

Having previously completed a Cert IV in health and safety as well as countless other inductions, high risk work licenses, and task specific short courses (like chemical storage, electrical rescue, etc) on top of previous roles as a Safety Officer and National Operations Manager of a drilling contractor I didn’t foresee a week of WHS training as being an enjoyable way to spend my time.

I fully admit I was wrong!

Many things discussed weren’t new to me, but they had to be discussed and if they weren’t the other participants would not have learnt about them. Despite being topics I was familiar with Peter delivered them in an interesting and engaging way, sprinkling in his own anecdotes as well as encouraging the class to share and discuss their own examples.

He’s obviously a man who’s had a few different roles, but he’s certainly found his calling as a presenter / educator.

Having a high quality reference book to take back to work is an invaluable bonus. Hopefully most in my class never need to issue a stop work order or PIN but if they do the reference materials will certainly be handy to quickly brush up on the methodology.

Venue was top notch, learning environment was ideal, and Peter’s skills at ensuring all in the room engage were a wonder to behold.

I’ll definitely be back for level 2 and 3 and wouldn’t hesitate to consider Peter for the delivery of other training topics.
