Workplace Project ZAX105

Hobart, Launceston, Cradle Coast


You will work on a practical industry project that develops your creativity and problem-solving skills within construction work. The focus of the project will be work health and safety and risk mitigation strategies. The project will be negotiated with your employer or a local industry partner, and you will work with them to deliver an effective solution. You will learn to propose and plan a project, project manage to develop a solution, and negotiate outcomes and deliverables with a client. You will also develop skills in written and oral presentation, critical thinking and time management, which are essential skills for project work. This unit will allow you to integrate learning from units throughout terms 1 to 3 of first year, and from the year-long and workshop series that is a central component of this course. The workshops will include guest speakers, industry visits and industry case studies, on a range of themes such as work health and safety, information management, innovation, resilience and environmental sustainability.
