Demonstrating knowledge and application of the O.H.S Act is an integral part of being a Safety Officer, since this is the person responsible for Health and Safety activities. Such an individual needs to be competent in all matters relating to Health and Safety and should adhere to the standards of the O.H.S.A at all times.
In this course we work through a set of 16 modules that range from legal knowledge and duties and responsibilities of the Safety Officer to a concise investigation of the O.H.S Act itself.
Other modules covered include, but are not limited to, incident and accident prevention, philosophy of accidents, management systems, hazard identification analysis and risk assessment.
Attention is also paid to health and safety policies and general safety applications.
