About this course:
This course introduces organisers to the opportunities and legal frameworks for organising around health and safety issues. Understand your legislative obligations around the election and training of health and safety representatives, and why this is vital in the formation of effective workplace organising committees.
You will learn how to navigate health and safety laws – while distinguishing them from industrial laws under the Fair Work Act – as you build you working knowledge of risk identification, as well as due diligence, and right of entry procedures. In doing so you can ensure there are strong health and safety structures in place to support workers, and that employers understand their obligation to consult with workers on matters that could impact health and safety.
Please note that this course is currently being updated. Enrolments will open again shortly.
