COVID-19 Project Webinar
WIL you be safe at work? Enabling safety and wellbeing in WIL: a Work Health and Safety Training Program for Students

Presented by: Lara Pugh, Belinda Margetts, University of Wollongong
Date/Time:28 April 2021,9:30am (AWST), 11:00am (ACST), 11:30am (AEST)

Work Health and Safety (WHS) is not merely about physical health and safety. WHS needs to encompass psychological and psychosocial health and safety if WHS workplace practices are to address matters such as diversity, equity and inclusion. WIL stakeholders are grappling with these complexities with a particularly vulnerable cohort of workers – students on work placements – due to their inexperience in the workforce. Now, COVID-19 has complicated matters further as many work placements have to be conducted remotely. The goal of this project is to design an engaging educational program outline that addresses working remotely and workplace bullying, harassment and assault.
