Instructions to Candidates
There is one part to Assessment 3.
Assessment 3 is a written task involving the completion of 20 questions. Two questions involve a Hazard
and Risk Register. There is also a skills role play supporting this assessment.
This assessment is about identifying hazards and then assessing and controlling risk as well as identifying
potential areas for health monitoring.
The assessment involves the scenario – ABC Steel (on page 5/6)
N.B. Your answers should be at least a paragraph long to show that you have adequately considered these
questions. Answers that are only a sentence long are not acceptable.
Assessment 3 – Hazard Identification
3.1 Choose four hazards associated with working at ABC Steel. (A physical, chemical, wellbeing and
biological hazard). Then explain how the risk associated with the hazard reacts upon the body to cause
harm. Then list typical control measures for each.
Category Hazard Hazard Risks of this hazard Effects on Body Accepted Levels of Exposure Health
Monitoring Control
e.g. PHYSICAL Heat stress Dehydration
Weakness, dizziness,
Prickly Heat,
Heat cramps
Heat exhaustion
Heat stroke A lack of hydration combined with a rise in the bodies core temperature to 40.5c resulting in a
loss of cognitive behaviour leading to nausea, seizures, confusion, disorientation, and sometimes loss of
consciousness or coma. Workplace specific. Hydration: 200ml of water every 15 mins.
Strict heat exposure controls to be followed. Stop work at 37.5c Measure exposure daily by safety
Measure of exposure temperatures occasionally by occupational hygienist using Wet Bulb Globe
Temperature (WBGT) index
CHEMICAL Pro – Weld pocking paste
Stresswide guide from worksafe
BIOLOGICAL Legionnaries disease

3.2 Use the Hazard Identification and Risk Register template provided below to list hazards that you have
identified at ABC Steel.
Identify the hazard, assign associated risks then follow this by recommending control measures using the
principles of the hierarchy of control.
Q 3.3 SAFETY WORKSHOP – Risk Assessment Role Play
Scenario – Additional information
You have just had a meeting with workers at ABC Steel and they are concerned that one area was
11/5/2019 51943 – Assessment 3 – Risk ManagementUnits covered in this assessment–Risk-ManagementUnits-covered-in-this 5/10
overlooked during the initial hazard identification. They have brought to your attention that workers are
storing finished grills and small items on a mezzanine level of the building. To access this floor, they use a
2.5m ladder or the forks of the forklift with a pallet as a platform. All products are handled and stored
manually wherever there is room. The floor is made of wooden boards some of which are cracked,
splintered, and slippery and have nails protruding. There are no safety barriers or gates around the edge of
the mezzanine floor. A worker recently slipped carrying items up the ladder and is off work recuperating
and workers are worried next time it could be a lot worse.
In this role play you and three other WHS Assistants (team members) are to carry out an emergency
“safety workshop” to help correct the issue of working at heights.
An emergency “safety workshop” is called and all stakeholders are required to brainstorm and offer
innovative safer solutions to this situation. You have access to your state’s relevant legislation as well as
SafeWork Australia’s code of practice “Managing the Risk of Falls at Workplaces”.doc and guidance
material “WorkSafe – Prevention of Falls– Mezzanines” pdf. For interpreting solutions for this situation.
You are required to identify and document issues and suggested solutions. You are then required to
complete the hazard identification register and consider control measures to be put in place. This will
include researching what safety options are available by reading through your resource material.
You have one hour to complete this workshop meeting. All team members are to participate. As well as
being assessed on your written documentation of the safety workshop meeting, your trainer will be
assessing you in-class on your ability to demonstrate key skills associated with this Certificate IV in Work
Health and Safety. The checklist that your trainer will be using for the in-class assessment can be seen
over the page.
Please ensure that you document the members of the meeting and state the time and date and location of
this meeting for authenticity reasons.
