OHS at Work free pdf It is the right of every person to work in a safe environment, however globally every year more than two million people lose their lives due to work-related injury and disease. This figure does not take into account the millions of people who are also injured while at work. Contemporary management of work health and safety in Australia fosters a risk management approach. The aim of a risk management approach is to determine workplace risk and to eliminate or control the risk to protect workers, to the environment and to the financial stability of the organisation. OHS at Work: Contemporary Issues in Australia is a practical guide for the safety professional to manage work health and safety in Australian organisations. It introduces the issues safety professionals are faced with when working in organisations in their efforts to improve the safety culture, and presents this discussion in light of this changing landscape to provide a guide for the safety professional that is backed up by research. This book is divided into four parts: Part I-Work Health and Safety Legislation- Part II-The Role of the Safety Professional- and Part III-Contemporary Issues. Appendices are then included that provide links to resources that can be used by safety professionals to assist them in their role.
