People are becoming aware of their responsibility as managers for the safety and health of their staff or people who may be contracted into their workplace. Each manager now is required to not only identify the OHS/WHS issues relating to their workplace, but also understand the legislation that pertains to their organisation and the implications if this is not adhered to.
This program is designed to provide an overview of the most fundamental aspects of Work Health and Safety (WHS) management.
Successful organisations understand their responsibilities for the management of the safety and health of its employees and others in the workplace. They also understand that it is often the organisation’s managers, supervisors and team leaders who carry the day to day responsibility for safety and are instrumental in determining that safety outcomes are achieved. This program will assist managers, supervisors and team leaders to understand their responsibilities under our OHS laws and develop the skills needed to effectively manage safety in the workplace.
Who Will Benefit
Senior and middle managers, supervisors and team leaders who wish to extend their knowledge and experience in the field of WHS and learn how to incorporate strategic risk management principles and practices.
Participants should be able to:
- Develop an effective WHS risk management plan for their workplace
- Develop, evaluate and monitor WHS consultative processes to ensure participation
- Plan for the systematic management of WHS in their area of responsibility.
