This Course in Impairment Awareness describes the skills and knowledge required to recognise the workplace health and safety risks and hazards of working while impaired and recognising when you, or a colleague may be experiencing an impairment.
Work Health and Safety (WHS) is a relationship between the health of the employee and the safety issues of their working environment. WHS acknowledges the dual effect of the employer to provide a safe working environment and of the employee to fulfil their duties in a safe manner with neither party having a direct or indirect adverse effect on the health of self or others when working with dust.
By undertaking this course, you will be able to make a more informed judgement and implement safe systems of work for the protection of themselves and colleagues as they will have a better understanding of identifying risk factors and someone suffering under the influence of one or more of these factors.
This course applies to all workers who require knowledge of impairment, the impacts on health and safety as a consequence of the hazard and risk due to impairment in the workplace.
