PUN500 Occupational Health and Safety Management

This unit explores legislative and practical requirements for managing health and safety in a workplace using a systems approach. It will provide you with the essential knowledge necessary to make recommendations, which ensure that an organisation has set effective OHS criteria to prevent occupational injury and disease. You will apply the concepts explored in this unit to critically analyse and evaluate the systems approach to OHS. By gaining an understanding of how to develop and implement control actions, you will learn how to design appropriate health and safety systems that eliminate or control hazards, enhance preparedness and responses to emergency situations, comply with legislation and drive best practice. You will explore how regular auditing and review strengthens the systematic approach to OHS management.
