This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to incorporate safe work practices into own workplace activities. It requires the ability to follow predetermined health, safety and security procedures and to participate in organisational work health and safety (WHS) management practices.
The unit applies to all tourism, travel, hospitality and event sectors and to any small, medium or large organisation.
All personnel at all levels use this skill in the workplace during the course of their daily activities.
The unit incorporates the requirement for all workers under state and territory WHS legislation, to participate in the management of their own health and safety, that of their colleagues and anyone else in the workplace. They must cooperate with their employer and follow practices to ensure safety at work.
Skills must be demonstrated in an operational business environment. This can be:
- an industry workplace; or
- a simulated industry environment set up for the purposes of assessment
Assessment must ensure access to:
- current plain English regulatory documents distributed by the local WHS government regulator
- codes of practice and standards issued by government regulators or industry groups
- health, safety and security information and business management manuals issued by industry associations or commercial publishers
- current commercial policies, procedures and template documents used for managing health, safety and security practices
- colleagues with whom the individual can interact. This can be:
- colleagues in an industry workplace who are assisted by the individual during the assessment process; or
- individuals who participate in role plays or simulated activities, set up for the purpose of assessment, in a simulated industry environment operated within a training organisation.
Assessors must satisfy the Standards for Registered Training Organisations’ requirements for assessors.
