Competency details
BSBWHS507 Contribute to managing WHS information systems
This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to contribute to managing work health and safety information systems (WHSIS) to support work health and safety (WHS) management. It focuses on systems for gathering, managing and communicating information necessary for WHS management.
It applies to individuals who contribute to the management of a WHSIS. These people will work in a range of WHS roles across all industries and apply a substantial knowledge base and well-developed skills in a wide variety of WHS contexts.
Note: The terms 'occupational health and safety' (OHS) and 'work health and safety' (WHS) are equivalent and generally either can be used in the workplace. In jurisdictions where the Model WHS Legislation has not been implemented, Registered Training Organisations are advised to contextualise the unit of competency by refe
ing to the existing State/Te
itory OHS legislative requirements.
