It creates risks for health, including eyesight problems and pain in arms (The Global Occupation Health Network 2010).

Performance objective and Assessment description:

The students are required to establish a risk management plan which will be included in the WHS management system of their chosen workplace. They need to write a Report based on the identified risks from the Checklist in Assessment 1.

Instructions for students:

 

Assessment 2 is compulsory.Youare required to achieve competency in all questions to be deemed Competent for this unit.

 

Based on the identified risks in Assessment 1, conduct a risk management plan for the organisation.  Your plan should include the following:

 

  1. Introduction

Provide a brief introduction of your chosen company.  Briefly, state the risks identified and the purpose of the report, which, is to establish a risk management plan.

 

The main risks that have been identified in the assessment 1 are the problems with equipment maintenance and electronic in the office, as well as lack of the first aid strategy. The purpose of the report is to identify the instruments how to minimize and avoid these risks.

 

  1. Risk management policies, procedures and processes

 

  1. a) Provide the organisation’s policies, procedures and processes for risk management and workplace health and safety. You can either provide a brief summary or provide theorganisation’s policies, procedures and processes as an Attachment.

 

  1. b) How are the organisation’s policies, procedures and processes maintained and stored?

 

The company under consideration has a developed risk policy that is approved by the board of the organizationand its managers. The risk policy targets identification of all the possible risks, their prevention andminimization of their impacts. The risk policies of the company are properly developed and stored. They are renewed on an annual basis since the risks are constantly changing and the company is forced to react to such changes (Duong 2009; Western Sydney University n.d.).

 

  1. Stakeholder analysis
  2. a) Identify who your internal and external stakeholders are.

 

The main internal stakeholders of the company are its employees. The main external stakeholders are partners and shareholders of the company.

  1. b) State the personnel responsible for managing the Safety Management System and approving the required resources.

 

There is a special department and separate manager in the company responsible for the safety management plan and risk policies.

 

  1. c) What method of consultation did you undertake with the stakeholders before identifying the risks in the area?

Two methods of communication used for consultation are personal interview and questionnaires of employees where they identified their personal opinion about potential risks for them and the company in general.

 

  1. d) Once the risk/s has been identified and if the hazards pose complicated risks to the organisation, management should be informed in order to seek advice from the expert/s. Who are the experts that can provide advice?  List at least two experts.

The first group of experts are professionals in risk minimization policies from external outsourcing agencies.The second expert group is the existing safety system manager of the company. This person already has some experiences and instruments of risk minimization in place.

 

  1. Risk management plan

 

Develop a risk management plan which includes the following:

 

 

  1. a) Objectives and critical success factors
  • Discuss and formulate the objectives of your plan.
  • Outline critical factors that will contribute to the success of the risk management plan (factors will be critical in successfully achieving the objectives).

The objectives of the risk management plan are the following:

  1. minimization of accidents at the workplace;
  2. minimization of financial resources invested in overcoming of the consequences of the risks;
  3. minimizationof the number of the potential hazards.

 

The factors, which are crucialfor contribution into the risk management plan, are the financial resources, professional level of management, time and human resources invested in the safety management system (Health and Safety Executive 2014).

 

  1. b) Scope
  • Discuss what the scope of your work area for WHS and of your risk management plan is.
  • Explain what factors you have considered in establishing your scope.

The scope of the risk management plan occupies the whole WHS area. The main factors that affect the scope of the risk management plan are the WHS legislation and internal character of the company’s performance.

  1. c) Risk Identification Analysis

 

List and assess the likelihood of the risks occurring (almost certain, likely, possible, unlikely, rare) and the potential consequence of these risks (catastrophic, major, moderate, minor, insignificant). You should use the following table:

 

Identified risk: Likelihood of risk: Consequence:
1. Electric problems likely Damage to equipment and health of employees
2. Problems in the office likely Problems for health of employees
3. First aid problems rare Problems for health of employees

 

  1. d) Evaluation

Evaluate your risks by using a risk matrix as follows:

 

  Consequence
Likelihood Almost certain Insignificant Minor Moderate Major Catastrophic
Likely     +    
Possible          
Unlikely          
Rare     +    

 

  1. e) Treatments

Develop treatment options for your risks.Utilise the hierarchy of control to develop your treatments. You need to describe the best  treatment options you have chosen.

 

The best treatment options for the identified risks will be constant monitoring of the existing conditions of electronic equipment, improvement in the office environment, and regular trainings for the employees about the first aid policies and practices inside the organization.The hierarchy of control involves the board of directors, the safety manager, the departmentmanager, and employees.

  1. Implementation plan

Discuss the arrangements for how your plan will be implemented, e.g. how will youput the suggested treatments in place and how this plan will be monitored and evaluated to ensure it is successfully implemented.You need to include this as an action plan, which details the following:

 

 

Action Plan

 

Risk Control measure

(hierarchy of control)

Monitoring method Timeline Person responsible Required resources
1. Location of monitors and keyboards Direct monitoring Monthly Safety manager Time
2. Electric conditions Direct control Quarterly Manager of every separate department Time and financial resources
3. Knowledge about the first aid Communication with employees Monthly Safety manager Time and financial resources

 

  1. WHS compliance
  • Describe the WHS management system in place to ensure organisational WHS compliance.
  • How will you ensure the organisation is compliant with all relevant WHS legislation and regulation at all times.

 

The WHS management system should be developed according to the general WHS practice. The goal is to implement the WHS requirements. All the documents of the WHS should be studied, whilethe internal company-wide documents must be developed and stored according to these requirements (Government of South Australia 2014).

  1. Communication plan

Discuss how you will communicate risk management processes, responsibilities and requirements to all relevant parties.

Stakeholder Topic to be communicated Responsible Person Timeline
An employee Safety policy Manger of a department Monthly
A manager Safety policy Safety manager Monthly

 

  1. Conclusion and recommendation
  • Sum up the main findings of your report.
  • Discuss what your recommendations were based on your analysis.
  • Include an evaluation of the risk management process and discuss what was done well/not so well, and what you would need to improve for next time.

 

Generally, the company under consideration is characterized with a low level of potential risks and appropriate level of safety policy. However, there still are some issues whichrequire improvement. They are mainly related to delivering the correct information to employees about the risk policy and first aid practices.

 

  • In addition, the current risk management process is quite effective in the organization. The well done points are the developed risk management plan and availability of a special department for the safety management. The negative side is absence of the first aid Therefore, there is a need to improve the approved strategy of the risk management.
