Principles Of Health & Safety Management (PHSM)®

As a result of updates to the PHSM course content, the option to complete PHSM online will no longer be available as of April 30, 2016. A new and integrated two-day PHSM course will instead be made available, providing a more streamlined program for industry participants.

One-day PHSM courses will run until the end of April across all of ACSA’s offices; as of May 1, 2016 the two-day PHSM course will take its place.
