Safety in Design

Course coming soon...

Current Work, Health and Safety (WH&S) Legislation as implemented by each of the states and territories has a greater emphasis on identifying hazards in the design process.

This online course focuses on safety in the engineering design process and provides a detailed understanding of the designers’ obligations under the WH&S Legislation. The course takes a systematic approach to the implementation of risk management.

Upon successful completion, you will have a greater understanding of the tools, practices and techniques to implement safe designs. Through engineering project examples and activities, you will gain an understanding of how safety and design fit into the risk management framework. 

Course outcomes

  • Demonstrate your understanding of the WH&S Legislation’s requirements of designers; the core components of risk management; and of some of the available tools and methods for risk minimisation.
