Task 1 – Workplace project
To complete this task you may use the templates at the rear of this assessment or download them from AAMC Training’s Useful Resources.
1.    Identify hazard/s in your workplace. To do this you will need to conduct a work area inspection using a workplace inspection checklist. If your workplace does not have a checklist you may use the template provided.
2.    Once you have identified the hazard/s; complete a risk assessment using a risk register.
3.    Now complete a hazard alert form/report outlining the hazard, root cause/ subsequent implications and minimize the risk by using the hierarchy of controls, i.e. what control methods have been recommended.
Task 2 – Short answer questions
Provide a brief outline on how you plan to ensure/support/contribute to ongoing evaluation/monitoring of new hazards and those currently identified.
Task 3 – Workplace project
What are an employer’s legal responsibilities for OH&S in the workplace?  As part of your response; ensure you name the Health and Safety Act and regulations.  You may wish to access this website to support your response. In addition review employer responsibilities for your state: http://www.business.gov.au/business-topics/employing-people/workplace-health-and-safety/Pages/default.aspx
Review the health and safety policies and procedures of your company or another company available via the internet i.e.; Woolworths provide OH&S Safety Policies on their website for contractors. Comment on why you believe it is important for an employer/company to have organisational policies, standard operating procedures and plans in place.

Task 4 – Case Study
Read the following scenario regarding hazardous substances, and answer the corroborating questions.

1.    Complete an incident report to report this occurrence.  You can either use your own company’s incident report forms or use the example found in the learning guide.

2.    Who would you report it to? Why?

3.    Explain your workplace emergency first aid procedure in dealing with this situation.

4.    Explain the recommendations you would make for storing and using hazardous chemicals (such as Drano) in your workplace.

Workplace Inspection Programme – Guidelines
It is highly desirable that a programme be set up to monitor and inspect the workplace.  Such an inspection programme will:
•    Enable control measures to be checked
•    Enable work practices to be observed
•    Permit the monitoring of risk management performance
•    Provide a mechanism for identifying hazards

An inspection programme should initially identify the areas to be inspected and the frequency of inspection.  Some one should be made responsible for carrying out inspections.

For each area to be inspected, a checklist should be prepared. The checklist should include the most significant hazards and the controls that are expected in the area.  It should include not only physical features such as checking that guards are in place and goods are being stored in the correct areas, but should also include checks to see that the correct working practices are being followed.

The checklist should be edited to reflect your workplace and the hazards that it might contain.

Inspection Records
When inspections are carried out, a copy of the relevant checklist should be taken with you. Each item should be ticked or crossed as appropriate and comments recorded if needed.
