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.
Developed by an award-winning team of experts*, from an extensive research and industry collaboration, this subject introduces students to the structure, content and activities that make up an OHSE management system. These include strategic planning, developing, implementing and reviewing such systems. In addition current thinking about the place of safety management systems within the modern organisational environment and new ways of influencing human behaviour for safety will be introduced.
*Dr Christine Way and her team have been awarded the ACU citation for Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning (Early Career) for her work in the revitalisation of the OHSE Management Systems offered through Open Universities Australia.
