Introduction to Ethics & Morality

For many years, workplace health, safety and wellbeing has been aligned with the concepts of morality and ethics. Many of us have passively accepted these concepts without actually clarifying what they mean, or questioning the moral obligations which they appear to assign to us all. This course will enable delegates to recognise and utilise key ethical concepts as part of their everyday roles. Throughout the course delegates will participate in engaging and practical thought experiments enabling them to engage and explore the topic relative to their roles and responsibilities.
