Participate in safe work practices

This course will provide you with the skills, knowledge and attitudes required to follow predetermined health, safety and security procedures. You are required to have the ability to incorporate safe work practices into all workplace activities and to participate in the organisation’s OHS management practices.

Following health, safety and security procedures is a fundamental workplace skill for those working within the service industries and applies to the full range of industry sectors and environments. Frontline operational personnel who work under close supervision and guidance from others are involved in applying safe work practices during the normal course of their daily activities.

OHS legislation in all Australian States and Territories imposes obligations on employees to participate in the management of their own health and safety and that of their colleagues and anyone else in the workplace. You have a duty to cooperate with your employer’s initiatives to ensure safety at work.
