Your task

Prepare a safety report for a specific workplace.

The workplace may be your own business, your place of employment or another business that you can access. Alternately, you may choose to develop a report based on one of the fictional workplaces contained in the Example businesses.

Your report should include sections that cover the following aspects of workplace safety.

  • The legal and workplace requirements for occupational health and safety.
  • Possible safety hazards identified in the workplace.
  • Procedures that could be applied to minimise risks and to control hazards.
  • A training plan to ensure that employees are aware of health and safety hazards and control measures.
  • An assessment plan to ensure that employees are following health and safety procedures.
Explore the topics for information that will help you complete the safety report.

Try the activities for some practical experience in conducting safety inspections and designing training strategies.

Discuss your safety report with other learners and compare different strategies to identify an approach that suits your workplace.
