Established in 1991 after amalgamating four eastern Australian Catholic tertiary institutes, Australian Catholic University now has seven campuses, from Brisbane to Melbourne and welcomes students of all beliefs. Specialising in arts, business, education, health sciences, law, theology and philosophy, ACU encourages its students to think critically and ethically and bring change to their communities and offer this online through Open Universities Australia.
On successful completion of this subject, you should be able to:
Apply and appraise contemporary measures of OHSE performance including OHS leading and lagging indicators, in order to influence business stakeholders’ responsible and ethical decision making (GA3, GA5)
Critically compare and apply techniques used to improve OHSE performance including constructing a business case to improve OHSE performance to meet national and international obligations and standards; (GA5, GA6)
Critically appraise the steps and processes in OHSE auditing and relate these to other organizational systems to maximize improvements in OHSE performance, through demonstrating values, knowledge, skills and attitudes appropriate to the discipline and/or profession; (GA4, GA5)
Communicate effectively with business stakeholders and key decision makers, from senior leaders to employees and external stakeholders, to measure, report findings, and improve OHSE performance
This unit will help students understand practical OHSE data characteristics, applications and limitations. It will also assist students to interpret and make recommendations from third party research and reports. Students will develop skills in influencing decision makers through the persuasive interpretation of empirically grounded data, such as leading and lagging indicators of OHSE performance, and alignment with organisational culture and values and understand ethical practice for OHSEM.
