This course provides a contemporary perspective on hazards, risks, accident causation and investigation. This includes both the physical and the psychosocial work environment. It provides a context for how Workplace Health and Safety management in these areas has developed over time as well as an opportunity to focus on current thinking and evidence based practice. Organisational and individual factors are introduced and considered including society, social interactions, culture, perception, fatigue and neuroscience. All of these are studied to enable a systems approach to effectively managing Workplace Health and Safety risk

Note: Due to the Job-ready Graduates Package new funding clusters and contribution amounts will take effect in the 2021 academic year. Grandfathering arrangements will be in place for students who would see an increase in their contribution amounts. Under these arrangements, students who commenced their course of study before 1 January 2021 facing increased student contribution amounts for a unit, will instead have their student contribution and Australian Government contribution amounts remain as they were under the previous arrangements (with existing rates being indexed by CPI each year). If continuing students are enrolled in units that will see their student contribution amount lowered, their student contributions will be the lowered amount
