Workplace evidence – optional
If you follow the learner pathway recommended for a Business Owner, you will achieve 40 Site Safe credits and be ready to graduate. You may also submit workplace evidence to reach the total 40 credits if you would like to.
Workplace evidence is taking a piece of learning and applying it to your everyday job or role. Site Safe want to see that you can apply the knowledge you learn on course in real life. This evidence could be documents, resources, images, videos or similar.
Suggested workplace evidence:
- Safety Objective Plan (1 credit)
For more information on workplace evidence, how to access document templates and submission guidelines please see the programme handbook.
Purchase access to the workplace evidence USB here.
Please note, you must purchase the USB to submit workplace evidence, including if you submit your own company versions. Workplace evidence submitted without purchasing access will not be accepted or processed.
Once you have competed all the required courses and workplace evidence, and have achieved 40 credits, you are ready to graduate!
We hold annual graduation events in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. Alternatively, you can opt to receive your certificate in the mail after graduation events are complete.
Site Safe will be in touch once you are ready to graduate with more details.
