  • communicating WHS/OHS issues with relevant person/s, and providing and explaining WHS/OHS information to a work group
  • implementing and monitoring participative arrangements for management of WHS/OHS
  • implementing and monitoring procedures for identifying hazards, and assessing and controlling risks
  • implementing and monitoring workplace procedures for WHS/OHS and maintaining records, including existing hazard register
  • implementing risk control measures using hierarchy of risk control
  • investigating hazardous events to identify causes
  • dealing with unplanned events/situations in accordance with workplace procedures in a manner that minimises risk to personnel and equipment
  • implementing procedures for dealing with hazardous events
  • performing training needs analysis and identifying training gaps
  • resolving WHS/OHS issues raised.

Evidence required to demonstrate competence in this unit must be relevant to and satisfy all of the requirements of the elements, performance criteria and range of conditions and include knowledge of:

  • provisions of relevant WHS/OHS legislation
  • principles and practice of effective WHS/OHS management
  • workplace hazards, range and selection of control measures
  • organisational WHS/OHS management systems and policies and procedures needed for legislative compliance
  • impact of characteristics and composition of the workforce on WHS/OHS management
