Learning Occupational Health by Experiencing Risks (LOcHER)

What is LOcHER?

An approach for students and apprentices to identify health and safety risks in their area of study; learn about them and showcase how they can protect their health and safety; and take that experience into the world of work.

It is designed to deliver risk control experience throughout the curriculum.

Employers can use the project approach to engage workers in a more engaging way than the traditional “slide and screen”, booklets and handout methods.
