This training course will cover factors affecting health and safety at work; different approaches to occupational health; hazards such as chemicals, plant, equipment, electricity, fire, explosive materials and biological hazards; health and safety in high-risk industries, such as agriculture, construction and manufacturing; developing an organization’s safety policy; accident reporting; legislation, policy and ethics; and preventing pollution. You'll also study occupational psychology - how both the culture, psychology and management of a workplace, and individuals' behaviour, attitudes and motivation affect health and safety, and how to deal with psychological hazards in the workplace.

Elements of an OH and S Program

  • Hazard identification
  • Risk assessment
  • Basic hazard control methods
  • Policy / management commitment
  • Roles and responsibilities
  • Continuous improvement
  • ISO 45001 will be a voluntary standard that is not legally binding but aims to help organizations to manage their OH and S risks and improve their performance to make people safer and healthier. Certification will help organizations to demonstrate that they have a robust OH and S system in place and will recognize that they have achieved an international benchmark – which will boost their reputation to customers and employees alike. Other benefits include:
  • A robust system to comply with OH and S regulations.
  • Fewer accidents mean less absenteeism, lower employee turnover rates and better morale
  • Reduced disruption to operations in terms of time and cost
