In addition, you will explore professional practice through the lens of OHS professional practice models, critical reflection, applied research methodology and project management. During this unit (Part B), you will complete project work with your industry sponsor and will prepare appropriate dissemination documentation and a seminar presentation. You will create and submit a professional portfolio of your work which will include a critique of the OHS Body of Knowledge. This unit has a strong emphasis on evidence-informed practice which will require guided and independent research activity to successfully complete this unit.
