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.
Upon completion of this subject students should be able to:
Appraise principles of causation in workplace incidents through the application of appropriate OHSE models
Assess an organisation’s OHSE management system against applicable legislation and standards, nationally and globally, and make recommendations for improvement
Propose and justify changes in safety leadership and culture practice to organisation stakeholders based on a critical review of how safety leadership and safety culture is impacting OHSE management systems and the common good
Apply OHSE practice skills of peer collaboration and communication to best manage responses to OHSE incidents and effectively communicate this to various stakeholders
Apply the process of critical reflection to professional judgements made when responding to OHSE incidents
This Unit employs a learning and teaching strategy that combines active learning (engaging with online lecture videos, reading, writing and case studies to analyse, synthesise and problem solve) and peer learning methods (engaging with peers and the lecturer via online tools to collaborate, query and elaborate). Live online classrooms will be offered at regular intervals throughout the teaching period to allow students synchronous access to their lecturer and peers at defined times. Use of applied case studies and scenarios with reference to legislation and standards as well as national and international contexts are used to facilitate applied action learning.
Three assessment items are required in this unit, all of which are based on a case simulation that will unfold during the teaching period. To pass this unit, students are required to achieve an overall mark of at least 50% and must make an attempt at all three assessment items. The assessment tasks for this unit are designed for students to demonstrate their achievement of each learning outcome.
