All details in this unit profile for OCHS13016 have been officially approved by CQUniversity and represent a learning partnership between the University and you (our student).
The information will not be changed unless absolutely necessary and any change will be clearly indicated by an approved correction
included in the profile.
In this problem based unit, you will be faced with a range of hazards, learning to apply both current problem solving approaches and a systems oriented approach to analysis with common systematic principles. The learning process is focused on specific hazards, chosen because they represent important issues in occupational health today and in the future. You will be expected to be able to extend your knowledge of the process to tackle new issues, although these may be issues that you have not previously dealt with. You will learn advanced approaches to the treatment of hazards and risk management, including knowledge of managing risk where a hazard cannot be eliminated. You will also learn the nature of illness and injury, as well as the pathogenesis to organs of the body caused by occupational exposure to a broad range of hazards. After graduation, you will be able to apply the problem solving and systems oriented approaches taught in this unit to contemporary employment settings, in particular to solving hazards not previously known to you.
