Certificate IV in Work, Health and Safety
Employer: Crisp Bros. and Haywards
Bradley is a Proud Palawa man and no stranger to vocational education and training. Having previously undertaken an apprenticeship in boiler making and welding, and certification in project management, Bradley recognises the many skills that his training has provided him.
When Bradley realised the importance of workplace health and safety in his industry, he decided to upskill and enrolled in a Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety with TasTAFE. In addition to creating a new career pathway for himself, his studies have given him the opportunity to pass his knowledge on to his work colleagues at Crisp Bros. and Haywards and improve health and safety in the workplace.
While studying for his qualification, Bradley had the opportunity to go to Kangaroo Island to help with their response to bushfires in the area. Bradley enjoyed the chance to build his teamwork and leadership skills. This was also beneficial to his work in the Army Reserve, of which he has been a member for over 20 years.
Bradley is proud of his Aboriginal heritage and loves to engage with his community. In his capacity in the Army Reserve, he works as the chapter lead of the Defence Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Network and is the Indigenous Liaison Officer for Tasmania. Bradley is also a big supporter of TasTAFE’s Aboriginal Support Program which assists Aboriginal students further their education and training.
