Application

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to identify hazards, assess the associated workplace safety risks, take measures to eliminate or minimise those risks, and document all processes.

The unit applies to all tourism, travel, hospitality and event sectors and to any small, medium or large organisation.

All people working at all levels can participate in risk assessments which are commonly conducted as a team effort. Frontline operational personnel, who operate with some level of independence and under limited supervision, would assist other colleagues during the process. Individuals may conduct the assessments independently of others.

This unit incorporates the requirement, under state and territory work health and safety (WHS) legislation, for businesses to conduct risk assessments involving their workers to manage the safety of those workers and anyone else in the workplace.

No occupational licensing, certification or specific legislative requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

Assessment Conditions

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
  • WHS information and business management manuals issued by industry associations or commercial publishers
  • current commercial policies and procedures, and hazard identification and risk assessment template documents
  • others with whom the individual can interact. This can be:
  • people 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.
