An understanding of the modern Australian Occupational Health and Safety culture has become one of the key employability criteria in the workplace in Australia today. This course will consider the OHS act in Victoria, as well as National legislation, and investigate how individuals and companies comply with the legislation. Issues dealing with all aspects of the workplace from manual handling tasks to more complex handling of biological agents, chemicals and hazardous wastes will be addressed. The course will also introduce students to HACCP/GMP for food preparation and manufacturing industries and NATA requirements for testing services and diagnostic laboratories.

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
