Management of WHS Risks Course
Why do this course?
It is the duty of a person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) to manage health and safety risks in the workplace. Every organisation, business, sole trader must have a WHS management system.
It is the duty of the business to provide the WHSMS. It is the duty of the leadership team to manage the system. It is the duty of supervisors, and team leaders to supervise staff. And it is the duty of workers, contractors, and any workplace visitors to follow the systems, rules, and protocols that are in place to protect all persons from harm at the workplace. Everyone has a responsibility. Everyone has to know their role in WHS risk management.
To raise the awareness and certainty of participants about why and how the risks of hazards in their workplace must be eliminated or minimised so far as reasonably practicable in accordance with requirements of the WHS Act and WHS Regulation specific to the management of WHS risks.
To ensure that participants are familiar with whom in the workplace (“duty holders”) have responsibilities to manage health and safety risks and how each duty holder interacts with other duty holders in order to achieve this.
The theory and practical content of this course is mapped to the specific Sections and Clauses of the NSW WHS Act and NSW WHS Regulation in regards to management of WHS risks; and the How To Manage Work Health and Safety Risks Code of Practice published by SafeWork New South Wales.
Managers, Supervisors, Team leaders, and any other persons involved in the administration and operation of your WHS management system.
