Disability Safe E-Learning Program
Part of the NDS Learn and Develop Sector Induction and Compliance curriculum, Disability Safe is a comprehensive and applied program consisting of eight individual e-learning modules. The program has been designed to enhance the quality of disability services through safe work practice.
Modules focus on developing and expanding workers knowledge and understanding in regards to creating and participating in safe environments.
The Disability Safe program package includes the following topics:
- Bullying Awareness for Senior Managers
- Bullying Awareness for Workers
- Food Safety for Disability Support Workers
- Impairment in the Disability Sector
- Infection Control for Disability Support Workers
- Medication Management
- Risk Management
- Slips, Trips, and Falls Awareness Training for the Disability Sector
Each module takes 20-30 minutes to complete and includes assessment questions throughout.
Disability Safe is not an accredited program, however, participants achieving 90 per cent or more on these questions are eligible to receive a certificate or completion. Participants receiving less than 90 per cent will be given the option to repeat the module.
