Format: This assessment task incorporates the knowledge of occupational health management that has been obtained throughout the unit and applies that knowledge in a manner that is directly transferable to the workforce. Once in the workforce, the student will be expected to identify occupational health hazards and develop strategies for the management of those hazards. In this assessment, students will be expected to critically discuss the potential impact of the hazard that they have identified, develop a strategy to manage the hazard, discuss how the strategy will be implemented and discuss how the strategy will be monitored and evaluated.
Exceeding the word count (2000 words ±10%) will result in a 10% deduction of the total mark.
