The fourth edition of WHS: A management guide continues to take a humanist approach (work should satisfy human needs equally with organisational goals), and goes beyond the risk-management model of physical safety to take into account the larger perspective of human health needs, including psychological and social needs. This edition will build on the key strengths of previous edition, namely
. the humanist approach
. well-developed insights into the Model Act, which situates the authors in an excellent position to build on current status quo and update examples for the states that are yet to implement it fully
. VET competencies


- Emphasises the strategic strategic role that WHS can play in meeting human needs with organisational goals. A humanist approach allows students to develop all-round management skills alongside risk management
- Pedagogical elements includeDid You Know boxes, Case studies with questions, WHS in Practice boxes, Summaries and 'In your workplace' scenarios with questions
- Based on the 2012 Model Act, so that all regulatory and legislative elements are in harmony for the states that have signed up, and with up-to-date examples for states that have yet to implement the Act fully.
- Carefully mapped for the Vocational and Professional Market, to ensure that all competencies are covered
