This training is delivered in-house (ie. at the trainee’s business location) and is designed to get business owners or managers to become familiar with the best practice methods for managing the health and safety risks specific to their own workplace. It focuses on improving the health and safety performance of workers at the business’s location and remote work activities in a manner compliant with the Health and Safety at Work Act (HSWA).
Since all businesses have unique requirements, the format and content of this in-house training will be tailored to suit each individual trainee. However, the intended outcomes are that trainees will:
1. Establish a Health and Safety Risk Management Framework for the trainee’s business
2. Assess the business’s top health and safety risks
3. Establish a functional Risk Register for the business.
4. Trainees will become familiar with facilitating a risk assessment workshop and will gain the skills to ensure that any risk controls are effective and appropriate.
5. Improve the H+S performance at their workplace
6. Select cost-effective hazard and risk controls
7. Develop a H+S risk management framework that is compliant with HSWA
Typically, a 1-2 hour preliminary scoping session is undertaken, either in person, by telephone or video conferencing. During the scoping session, details of the specific training requirements are discussed and a plan is established for delivering the training.
The training consists of a full day (hours defined by the trainee) and will comprise elements of the following:
1. Introduction to the risk management process and how this is used to manage health and safety risks in the workplace. This introduction will be of benefit to all personnel in the workplace and may be used as part of a monthly safety meeting.
2. A guided risk assessment workshop, where actual workplace hazards are identified, assessed for the harm they could cause and the likelihood of that harm occurring, existing controls are identified, risk levels are attributed to each identified risk and then prioritised. New risk treatments will then be suggested for top risks only.
3. Guidance is provided on the establishment and use of a risk register
After the training at a date agreed to by the trainee, the risk register (including the risks assessed during the training and any risks added after the training) and any accompanying documentation is reviewed and constructive feedback provided.
This service consists of:
1-2 hour preliminary scoping session
1 full day in-house training
Written feedback on the risk register and other documentation produced after the training.
