Courses are taught in block mode for one week before the start of each semester requiring in-person attendance at the RMIT city campus, with weekly tutorials, consultation, and support provided online. All lecture materials are provided online.
In some courses there may be need for practical demonstration and use of instruments to measure workplace hazards, as incorporated into the teaching week. RMIT has a purpose-built OHS laboratory containing the latest measurement equipment.
Most of the assignments are workplace scenarios designed to apply health and safety theories
