Using a framework based on Australian standards for risk management and OHS management systems, the guide covers all the fundamental principles and legal obligations that students and workplace personnel need to understand in order to establish and maintain a safe and health work environment. OHS risk identification, assessment and control are covered in detail. It provides an overview of legislation, and three chapters on the management of specific risks. Areas covered include violence and emergencies, alcohol and other drugs, and driver safety, as well as hazardous substances, shiftwork, and age/experience issues. Sources of further information and training are comprehensively covered, including government and other organisations, useful websites, and the roles of the various types of OHS professionals.
