Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) is a key concern for organisations and is heavily legislated within Australia. Both managers and workers must take reasonable care to ensure their personal safety and the safety of others. This can be achieved by abiding with legislation, adopting a risk management approach and effectively managing and resolving WHS issues in the workplace.
This course identifies the WHS responsibilities of managers in promoting a safe workplace. It also explains the risk management approach and describes the procedures for resolving WHS issues.
