Occupational Health & Safety in Building Construction

Learn how to develop and implement Occupational Health & Safety Procedures, Strategies and Risk Management Systems for the health & safety of your Building Construction Projects

About The Program

This module of unit specifies the outcomes required to apply a approach to identify hazards and assess and control OHS risks. It addresses the underlying knowledge and skills required to provide a systematic approach to hazard identification, risk assessment and risk control. The emphasis is on eliminating risk or, where this is not possible, minimising risk. This unit also includes conceptual models for understanding the nature of hazards.

Within the context OH&S for building construction projects the principal contractor is responsible for identifying all site safety issues and providing and maintaining the proper systems to ensure the safety of workers, visitors and the public.

This module of study contains and specifies the outcomes required to manage Occupational Health & Safety in Building Construction for major projects. It covers the facilitation, implementation and management of the risk systems in OH&S for a building and construction organisation involved in residential and/or commercial projects.

Program Summary

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to manage Occupational Health & Safety using Risk Management Procedure for major projects.

It covers the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to conduct a formal risk assessment comprising analysis and evaluation of occupational health and safety (OHS) risk system in a building and construction organisation involved in residential and/or commercial projects.

 

Program Aims

This unit of competency supports the needs of building professionals, Registered Building Practitioners, senior managers within building and construction firms and other construction industry personnel responsible for addressing the knowledge, processes and techniques necessary to analyse and evaluate OHS risk as part of the risk management process for residential and commercial projects.

This course unit specifies the outcomes required in OHS risk analysis; defining the range of consequences, assessing the effectiveness of existing controls and deciding the likelihood of each consequence, and combining these in some way to obtain a level of acceptable risk with projects in the building and construction industries.

Outcomes
