MGT8017 Safety Science in Practice
Students are required to have access to a personal computer, e-mail capabilities and Internet access to UConnect. Current details of computer requirements can be found at <http://www.usq.edu.au/ict/students/standards/default.htm>.
This subject covers the practical applications of physical, biological, behavioural and engineering sciences to safety and health control practices in the workplace. The approach is to analyse hazards and tasks and to identify and understand the nature of risks so that sequences of events can be interrupted, and components within these sequences kept separate, isolated and constrained.
