In jurisdictions where the Model WHS Legislation has not been implemented RTOs are advised to contextualise the unit of competency by referring to the existing state/territory OHS legislative requirements. No licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication. Unit Sector Regulation, Licensing and Risk Work Health and Safety Objectives On completion of this subject learners will be able to: 1. Access information to identify hazards, and assess and control risks 2. Contribute to compliance and workplace requirements 3. Contribute to workplace hazard identification 4. Contribute to WHS risk assessment 5. Contribute to the development, implementation and evaluation of risk control 5 P a g e N o v e m b e r 2015

10 Activity 1. Your organisation is considering purchasing a conveyor system to improve efficiency of their warehousing and distribution department. Your General Manager has asked all heads of departments to prepare a report from the viewpoint of their specific area of responsibility in order to assess the feasibility of this modification to the workplace. The accounts department is crunching the numbers, the personnel department is considering the staffing levels and naturally your department has been tasked with considering the WHS implications. Write what your contribution to the feasibility meeting would be using the headings below as prompts. (500 Words Max.) Use the relevant Code of Practice in your Learner Resource File as a reference for this activity. 1. Sources of information and data to be consulted / used to determine the nature of hazards relevant to this type of plant (conveyor) and the range of harms that could be caused by exposure to those hazards. 2. Examples of hazards and harms that could be caused, provide at least five, and in what risk scenarios these harms could be caused. (Be specific, e.g. rotating parts and crushed fingers by getting fingers caught in rollers) 3. Examples of risk controls. (What needs to be put in place to reduce the likelihood of the risk scenarios and harms listed above from occurring or the severity of the consequences if they should occur) 4. What workplace policies, procedures, processes and systems will be required to be implemented to contribute to the effectiveness of the risk controls listed above? 10 P a g e N o v e m b e r 2015

11 END OF ACTIVITY Referring to your organisation s nature and scope of business, identify five hazards and their categories that could be described as commonly occurring, where they may occur, how could a person be exposed and what could be the effect to them of exposure to that hazard. Commonly occurring hazards Hazard category Where they may occur How exposed Effect of exposure List hazards e.g. slippery Physical What do you What harm will surfaces and Refer to List location in the have to do to happen to you if not the results below business / get hurt by you are exposed of hazards such premises these hazards to the hazard as slips or trips 11 P a g e N o v e m b e r 2015

12 Hazard Categories 1. Electricity: 2. Chemical: 3. Mechanical: 4. Human: Tools, equipment, Powders, liquids, gases Machinery, vehicles Lifting, pulling, pushing power sources 5. Temperature: 6.

For three of the hazards that you have identified above, suggest appropriate techniques, tools or processes to identify this hazard and why you have chosen this option. (Techniques, tools or processes are anything that enables you to identify a hazard and is not limited to metering equipment, consider who you might talk to, what you could read or where you could look etc.) Hazard Technique, Tool Or Process Reason e.g. Noise Sound Level Meter (Decibel Meter) Provides a more accurate measure than human judgement 12 P a g e N o v e m b e r 2015

What three pieces of information are essential to determining the risk associated with a particular hazard? 11. What tools, techniques and processes could an organisation use to enable it to use the best available sources of information when analysing and assessing risk? 13 P a g e N o v e m b e r 2015

14 12. What tool is used to give a value or rating to the combination of likelihood and severity? 13. When is or could a risk matrix be used to evaluate risk in your current or previous organization or one that could be described as a typical organisation? 14. Provide an explanation of the hierarchy of controls and provide an example question that workers could ask themselves when considering each of the levels on the hierarchy of control listed below. Control Type Question Elimination Substitution Isolation Engineering Administration 14 P a g e N o v e m b e r 2015
