Occupational Health & Safety Management

 

 1.      Course Description:

Many employees and workers continue to be killed or injured due to lack of safety management at their workplaces. Employees and workers suffer health and long-term illness caused by their work. Many of these illnesses only manifest themselves years after exposure and many are ultimately fatal. These injuries, deaths and illnesses can and should be prevented. Employers have traditionally borne the responsibility for OHS. Project managers and their site-level managers as well as business professional usually have a limited understanding of their obligations relating to OHS or OHS principles and practices - which is, to a large extent, the result of a serious gap in most business and engineering degree courses. This course aims to provide business managers, professionals and practitioners/students with an understanding of theory pertaining to OHS as well as to introduce a range of tools and techniques representing best practice in the management of OHS. Details of lectures are given in the course outline section.
