Superseded by BSBWHS518 Manage WHS hazards associated with maintenance and use of plant


This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to effectively manage work health and safety (WHS) hazards and to comply with WHS legislation as it applies to the management or control of plant (not the design, manufacture, supply, installation, construction or commissioning of plant or issuing of licences associated with plant).

It applies to individuals who may provide leadership and guidance to others using managerial and communication skills and who use systematic approaches to identify and resolve issues.

NOTE: 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 the National Model WHS Legislation has not been implemented RTOs are advised to contextualise the unit of competency by referring to the existing State/Territory OHS legislative requirements.

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