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
Blended learning options
Courses offered as part of blended learning programs include a meaningful blend of online, on-campus, and workplace based learning tailored to the type of study you undertake. This learning is active, prioritising tasks that involve exploration and development of skills and knowledge through interaction and engagement.
Online aspects provide positive benefits such as flexibility and adaptability using digital activities and materials, while also strengthening the interaction and connection with timetabled and on-campus experiences such as tutorials, practicals, or workshops.
