The OHS Bok was first published in 2012. Since then it has been incorporated into accreditation criteria for university-level OHS education and capability assessments for professional certification. It provides a framework for CPD for OHS professionals and practitioners. The AIHS have recognised the importance of the OHS BoK in their Capability Agenda. (add link)
Maintaining currency through updating chapters and developing new chapters is vital to the integrity and ongoing value of the OHS BoK. As part of this ongoing development we thought it time for a new look.
We are excited about the new web site and trust you find the new layout and additional information useful. It is a work in progress so we welcome comments.
We also have a new, fresh format for the chapters. We will be migrating each chapter to the new format as they are updated. You will find a number of chapters already updated with a further tranche of updated chapters due to be released by the end of September. Other chapters scheduled for more extensive review will be posted as they are reviewed. Original versions of these chapters are available on their specific web pages. See the contents list (link) for current versions scheduled updates.
