Subject outline

In this subject students participate in a range of activities that will enable them to develop practical skills in selecting and applying some of the methods learned in HBS5EAM. Students review a series of generic case studies, each detailing a range of different types of work-related hazards. For a subset of these cases they select one or more assessment methods appropriate for application in a workplace to which they have access (eg. their own). Selected methods are then used to collect and analyse data and report findings, including recommendations for future workplace interventions.
