This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to contribute to implementing a plan for a work health and safety management system (WHSMS) that applies to own role.
The unit applies to individuals with responsibilities for contributing to the implementation of an organisation’s WHSMS as part of their work health and safety (WHS) responsibilities in a range of industry and workplace contexts.
1. 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 model WHS laws have not been implemented, registered training organisations (RTOs) are advised to contextualise this unit of competency by referring to existing WHS legislative requirements.
2. The model WHS laws include the model WHS Act, model WHS Regulations and model WHS Codes of Practice. See Safe Work Australia for further information.
3. For the purposes of this unit of competency ‘safe systems of work’ refers to a formal procedure that results from systematic examination of a task in order to identify all the hazards. It defines safe methods to ensure that hazards are eliminated or, where this is not possible, risks are minimised.
No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
