WorkChoices Threatens Health Workers’ Safety – Union OHS Training Critical
This is a presentation highlighting the current threats to health workers health and safety as a consequence of WorkChoices legislation, and the OHS training services offered by the HSU and the ACTU to mitigate these impacts. One of the most heinous aspects of the WorkChoices legislation is to make it harder for workers to access Occupational Health and Safety Training.
The HSU and ACTU OHS Training has the following additional advantages:
Maximising Economies of Scale and Scope - Collective use of resources to maximise efficiencies and effectiveness
Flexible Delivery: Facilitate learning at the same time as working full time and/or shiftwork. Supporting workers and employers to undertake training
Maximising Existing Knowledge: Recognition of prior learning and cross industry and geographical learning:
Supporting Good Employers: Developing and delivering training options to all employees and managers, where employers recognise the benefits
