  • Overview

    Introduction
    Almost anybody working in a management position anywhere in the developed or developing world has a duty of care to provide a safe environment for workers and customers. In Australia this responsibility is constituted in the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 and most developed countries have similar legislation. This subject will examine the types of risks predominantly found in hospitality, sport, tourism and other service sector businesses. Students will become familiar with the international standard for risk management (ISO 31000) and will apply this process to a variety of business case studies.
