Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to facilitate the development and use of WHS risk management tools.

It applies to individuals with responsibility for risk management. These people will work in a range of work health and safety (WHS) roles across all industries and apply a substantial knowledge base and well developed skills in a wide variety of WHS contexts.

NOTE: The terms 'occupational health and safety' (OHS) and 'work health and safety' (WHS) are equivalent and generally either can be used in the workplace. 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 or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

Unit Sector

Regulation, Licensing and Risk – Work Health and Safety
