    Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs)

    Upon successful completion of this course you will be able to:
    1. Explain basic OH&S legislative requirements in regards to employer and individual responsibilities in the areas of;

    personal safety,

    workplace hazards, o types of hazards and o hazard identification.

    select suitable responses to basic emergency first aid and resuscitation situations

    2. Analyse basic electrical, civil, network and mechanical engineering drawings to manufacture engineering components
    3. Demonstrate workshop procedures and design processes (including projects and application of the listed OH&S requirements)
    4. Fabricate metal and wood items/devices and electrical circuits/devices in a workshop environment adhering to appropriate OH&S requirements;
    5. Demonstrate skills of correct use of basic hand tools, machines and equipment adhering to appropriate OH&S requirements.
    6. Apply Occupational Health and Safety management methods, techniques, processes, and practices
    7. Research and analyse current industrial practices in the engineering industries.

     

    Overview of Learning Activities

    Common activities for both Associate and Bachelor levels: 
    ● Face to face teaching: To obtain an introduction to occupational health and safety (OH&S) principles, first aid, fundamentals of manual drawing and workshop procedures and processes, mechanical ,electrical/electronic fundamentals, electronic devices and circuits, and the application of these principles to basic problem solving.
    ● Personal reading (e.g. prescribed sections of the textbook): To reinforce/strengthen your understanding of principles and applications.
    ● Simulation, videos, and laboratory sessions: To understand key concepts of OH&S and practical applications, and how to apply theory to practice, you are encouraged to watch videos on special topics available in the Carlton Library. The lab work/simulations allow you to develop skills in understanding principles.
    ● Projects

    At Associate level this course contributes to the following program learning outcomes:
    ● Workshop practices: You will participate in workshop activities to develop hand tool and machining skills or manufacture electrical/electronic devices and utilise electronic diagnostic methods.

     

    Overview of Learning Resources

    Learning resources will consist of recommended references and class notes which may be accessed through "myRMIT" if you are in Melbourne and via "RMIT online" if you are based in Vietnam. 
    The set of references is deliberately broad, including books, journal publications, government reports, industry standards and handbooks, and web-based resources.
