Case Studies in OHSE is an intermediate unit from the Australian Catholic University, made available through Open Universities Australia. You will use a range of case studies to explore themes and inter-relationships around a variety of safety, health and environment events and concerns – including DDT, asbestos, Bhopal, Piper Alpha, Exxon Valdez, melanoma and workplace cancer. The unit also contains an in-depth exploration of OHSE as an integrated concept and management model.
Following on from earlier studies in occupational health, safety and environmental management, this online unit will teach you to effectively assess the impact of adverse effects on health and environment within organisations, and to understand the inter-relationship of these effects with the interaction of the workplace, work systems, the environment and people.
By exploring case studies of failures and inadequacies in past situations, you will come to understand how OHSE risks to health or environment in organisation can be controlled, and will be expected to develop a practical model of OHSE management while analysing issues that are of relevance to your experience and background.
