Course description

This course examines the emergence of OHS as a profession and discusses the implication of professional practice for graduates. Students will have an opportunity to reflect and discuss experiences and learnings from their industrial placements and apply this knowledge to ethics, leadership, organisational culture and industrial relations. Contemporary OHS issues such as worker demographics and globalisation of the labour market, work organisation, and fatigue will be discussed. Students will gain practical experience in developing and delivering OHS workplace training, a critical skill for the OHS graduate. In addition, students will have opportunities to prepare for life as a graduate through developing their written job application skills and interview techniques.
