This unit is Part A of a two-unit learning series which will provide students the opportunity to consolidate and practically apply all of the knowledge, skills and attitudes developed during their learning journey in the OHS course. In particular as related to analyses which draw on human factors, occupational hygiene, safety science and risk management knowledge. There is a specific emphasis on developing higher order skills and understandings which are representative of the holistic application of core skills that occurs when the professional understands the interaction between core disciplinary domains in solving complex problems. In addition, students will explore professional practice through the lens of futures methods and thinking, applied research methodology, project management and return on prevention analyses. During this unit (Part A), students will negotiate with an industry sponsor to complete project work during Part B of this unit series and will prepare appropriate documentation in readiness for approval. Students will create and submit a professional portfolio of their work.
