Duration

Approximately 1.5 hours

This module is designed for graduates to increase awareness of their own responsibilities and the responsibilities of others in relation to workplace heath and safety as they enter the workforce.

As a university graduate, you should appreciate the important role each individual plays in contributing to a positive health and safety culture in the workplace.

In these scenarios you will adopt the role of a Managing Director (MD). You will seek information and advice from a range of OHS professionals and other specialists before making decisions that could impact on the health and safety of employees and others in the workplace.

In successfully completing these scenarios you, as the MD, will be able to avoid causing injury, illness or death to those in the workplace. This is not always the situation in real life. Those who have been involved in a serious injury or a fatality in a workplace know that the consequences will affect them for the rest of their lives. WHS is not just about rules and regulations it is about protecting people.
