About this course:
Workers have a fundamental right to be safe at work. Organisers and officials have a role to play in ensuring employers provide safe workplaces, and understand why they adopt effective safety structures and processes.
Whether you are an Organiser or an Official, this course will bolster your knowledge of Work Health and Safety legislative and policy frameworks, as well as practical skills to better communicate, organise and provide leadership on Work Health and Safety (WHS) issues in Australian workplaces.
Build your understanding of how unions have traditionally organised around WHS issues, and how legislation can assist both in establishing health and safety structures, and informing workplace decision-making processes, in consultation with workers and employers.
