  6. 6. GET YOUR WORK DONE BY Q2: outline as many ways as you can in which communication relating to Safety and Health may take place. For each answer, you are required to provide both a positive and negative aspect for each method. You must also identify how you should ensure that all employees in the organisation are able to receive and understand the communication? There are many methods that can help an HR practitioner to communicate that relates to Safety and Health of the employees with the workforce. Some of those are outlined as: rs Face to face meeting: In this method a meeting is held and all the employees join together in this meeting. Safety pe and Heath representatives give presentations on safety and health matters and make employees aware of their safety at workplace. It also can be held in one to one sessions. One employee treated at one time. This method is more effective but at the same time it is time consuming and it can’t be used with the employees of other regions. Orientation of new employees: Pa New employee is given an introduction of all the policies and procedures to make him/her aware of company structure. He is communicated about safety and health matters. This method is helpful for new entrants but it does not help the existing employees and you have to communicate them separately. de Regular safety briefing: Employees are briefed at regular times about the changes and trends. It helps to keep employees up to date with legislations but its cost is higher as briefings are to be held many ra times. Establish safety and health committee:pG It will help to solve employee matters and will communicate them about legislations. It gives a proper platform to employees. Electronic updates: If a company has intranet facilities, it can use electronic updates. It is cheaper and easy toTo access for all. But at the same time it does not give prove that all the employees have read it or if read, understood it properly or not. To ensure whether all the employees have got the information and understood, you should develop a monetary plan. You should act upon 6 C’s of communication and to ensure whether it is understood or not you should ask for questions, suggestions and feedback from employees. GET YOUR WORK DONE BY
  7. 7. GET YOUR WORK DONE BY Q 3: outline the purpose of an Occupational Safety and Health policy and procedure. What information should be included in such a document? The purpose of Occupational Safety and Health policy is to ensure that an organisation meets its Duty of Care obligation.

The policy should clearly pe set out organisation’s commitment to the safety and health or its employees, visitors and stakeholders. It should also describe the responsibilities of persons and levels. Pa Q 4: For an industry / position of your choice, outline what items would be important in a new employee safety induction? In a new employee safety induction the following items should be of utmost importance. de  Overview of the safety aspects of working in the organisation  Overview of the safety and health policies and procedures to outline; o The safety rules o The types of hazards and risks relevant to the organisation and work ra environment. o Expectations in terms of personal protective equipment  Expected behaviour  Importance of duty of carepG  Steps to take in the event of emergency Q5: Assume that you are the HR practitioner for an organisation who is responsible for the day to day implementation of the organisation’s safety and health program.

The hazards can be a combination of situations of work actions i.e. trailing leads across the office or climbing a ladder. Using the risk assessment grid, rank each of the risk appropriately. Once you have ranked the risks, identify which measure from the hierarchy of control rs you should select and provide at least two corrective actions for each hazard. Your responses should be presented in table format. pe ASSESSMEN MEASURE S RISK FROM CORRECTIVE HAZARD T No HEIRARCHY ACTIONS 1 2 lung cancer Chemicals may harm hands 3 Pa Dust particles arising through 1 weaving of thread may cause OF CONTROL Personal protective Provide Mouth covers equipment Personal protective Exhaust the dust particles Provide protective gloves de while dying the thread equipment Use machinery 3 Hazard of having electric shock 2 Engineering Install electric proof from machinery control system Cover the machine areas that may cause electric ra shock 4 Work environment light and 3 Engineering Improve lighting other conditions controls Workplace cleanliness 5 Working on computers for long 2 Administrative Reduce hours of work atpG hours controls computer Share the work with other employees 6 Hazard of losing data in 4 Engineering Setup a backup computers controls Store on other places 7 Aroma of chemicals may cause 4 Personal protective Provide mouth coversTo diseases equipment Install effective exhaust system 8 Poor fire control system 1 Engineering Install new system controls Remove hazards that may cause fire 9 Boiler may blow up due to high 1 Engineering Install a thermometer temperature controls Ensure the proper maintenance 10 Company transport 5 elimination Get transport insured insurance Drivers training GET YOUR WORK DONE BY
  10. 10. GET YOUR WORK DONE BY SESSION 5 Q1: Why is it impotent to consult employees in your organisation on matters relating to Occupational Safety and Health? rs In an organisation the employees are of great worth. In OSH matters the employees may have a valuable contribution. Some important reasons are like:  Employees are most valuable source of information pe  Having insight in relation to the way in which work is carried out  They are well aware of safety risks involved in their jobs as they deal with them every day of their work.  They may have developed a safety plan in their mind that needs to be judged.  Pa It will realize them that their organisation feels for them and listens to them. And it will create sincerity towards organisation. Q2: what are the advantages of employee consultation In relation to Occupational Safety de and Health? When an organisation consults its employees in matters relating to OSH it gives them a valuable contribution. The advantages that an organisation gets are: ra  Policies and procedures get proper shape and employees welcome it with open hearted because these are developed with employee consultation pG When consulting employees, it gives them courage and message that their organisation cares for their wellbeing and is committed to develop a safe work environment.  It realizes the employees that their organisation values their inputs, experience and ideas.  The acceptance of polices increases when employees are consulted in developingTo them.  It reduces rejection, opposition and negativity towards it.  By employee consultation, employees become more aware of safety and health and have the ability to identify hazards. Q3: what are the likely consequences of failing to consult with employees in relation to Occupational Safety and Health? GET YOUR WORK DONE BY
  11. 11. GET YOUR WORK DONE BY If employees are not consulted the imposed implementation may face rejection because the employees think they could have given a better solution to the hazard if they would be consulted. If not rejected the implementation or change would face greater resistance by employees in adopting to change. Sometimes, employees don’t welcome such a change that is not carried out with their consultation. They don’t feel themselves a part of implementation or change so the success of system or implemented change is highly unlikely and risky. rs Q4: Think about your own organisation or an organisation you are familiar with. Does the organisation actively consult with employees on matters relating to OSH? If so, how pe does the consultation take place and what benefits does this bring? If consultation does not take place, what effects does this have on Safety and Health in the workplace? The organisation effectively consults with its employees. But still there is a need for Pa improvement. The organisation consults its employees in many ways i.e. face to face meetings and taking the employee ideas, sharing its experience and taking suggestion from them. For any hazard a questionnaire is developed and distributed among employees or they are asked to give their suggestion of a blank page. This consultation brings man benefits to the organisation. For instance, the resistance to change gets low and chances of rejection are de also minimized. By employee consultation, employees become more aware of safety and health and have the ability to identify hazards. Furthermore, employees warmly welcome any change that is introduced with their consultation. Hence as a result the chances of success increase. ra SESSION 6pG Q1: using the AustLII website link above to access the WA OSH legislation (specifically the OSH Act), research and provide an overview of the duties of the employers. Safe system of work: employer is required to provide and maintain workplaces, plants andTo systems of work and also co-ordination of work activities. Information & instruction: provide information to employee as is necessary to enable them to perform their work. Training and supervision: employer is also liable for employees’ training and supervision of work. Consultation and cooperation: consultation with employees on matters relating to Safety and Health. GET YOUR WORK DONE BY
  12. 12. GET YOUR WORK DONE BY Foresee ability: to foresee the hazards that are hidden or try to remove the risk before it causes harm. Identification of hazards, assessment and control. Provision of personal protection: when hazards can not be avoided totally, and then comes the protection. In this case employer provides protective cloths and equipment. Safe plant and substances: safety is to ensure by employer. Plant safety and harmful substances should be kept carefully. rs Q2: using the AustLII website link above to access the WA OSH legislation (specifically the OSH Act), research and provide an overview of the duties of the employees. pe  Follow the employer’s instructions provided for safety and health reasons.  Use personal protective clothing and equipment that has been provided by the   employer. Pa Take good care of equipment provided in the interests of safety and health. In particular, the employee must not misuse or damage the equipment. Report hazards that the employee cannot correct. The requirement is to report to the employer.  de Any procedure that sets up a chain of command or delegates the task of receiving hazard reports should ensure there is prompt action to fix the problem or refer it on to someone who can address it.  Report injury or harm to health that is connected with the work activity. This applies to physical injuries and to the early symptoms of illness or disease that may be ra connected with work.  Co-operate with the employer to allow the employer to carry out his or her duties under the Act. This complements the employer’s duty and means that employeespG should actively work with employers with the common aim of improving safety and health at the workplace.2To 2 GET YOUR WORK DONE BY

  14. 14. GET YOUR WORK DONE BY Session 8 rs pe Training needs identification: Pa In this question we are analysing the different methods of training needs identification with reference to the advantages and disadvantages: Job observation is the method that helps us to directly observe a position to determine need de identification. It has certain advantage like it provides direct firsthand information that others do not. It’s very simple to use as compare to others. Simply it also verifies data from other resources and it helps to practically evaluate the needs and the requirements. Similarly some disadvantages are also exits. It is time consuming. At the same level it doesn’t provide ra full information for the complex jobs and it may incurred with a biased decisions. It also may infer with the job performance and this type of observation represents a very small datapG where error chances are more. When we are talking about the surveys, it helps us in many ways. This helps us to consider a large sample size. Similarly it is very cheap to conduct as compare to the other methods. It can also be handled through remote positions through emails, phones etc. At the same levelTo Standardized questions make measurement more precise by enforcing uniform definitions upon the participants. At the other side of the coin it oppose to the concept of the direct observation. That may lack in some feasible points. These surveys are very inflexible and require a wide study before survey development. In this situation many of the respondents do not show interest. And you have not a proper investigation due to this reason. As the informal discussion is concern, it helps the managers to determine the internal needs of the employees about what they want or not. It helps them to have a deeper look that is not possible through other ways. The disadvantage of this pattern is that it is quite informal. It GET YOUR WORK DONE BY
  15. 15. GET YOUR WORK DONE BY has not a determined pattern about the investigation or method. So it becomes very complex to draw a conclusion from it. The fourth method is the via performance measurement. It is also an important way. In this way you can easily have a look where an employee is week or strong or where it needs to be change to have better operations. When you have feedback on this from different employees you gain a better idea to discuss what to do or not to do. It also provides a platform to judge it through discussion board evaluation. It does not give an rs in-depth analysis. It just skims the performance and gives the results. And as the training skills analysis and skills audit is concern, it best help us to evaluate the best required skills to implement and which skills need to be trained to get a better opportunity. It helps us to pe determine just skills needs but it does not focus on the other phases that need to be train like culture, communication etc. Pa Session 9 1. Outline your understanding of the term “on the job” training. Provide at least 3 examples of training that you would consider to be more de effective if carried out on-the-job. On-the-job training (OJT) is the one of the best training due to certain reasons. One ra reason is because this method it is planned, organized, and conducted at the employees worksite. OJT is generally considered as the primary method used for polish employee skills and increasing their productivity. Similarly it is very appropriate for developingpG proficiency skills that are related to an employees job. It is more suitable for the locally own businesses and the requirements. Some examples are for the on the job training like Maintenance Technicians, architecture maintenance, construction and the Electrician, Mechanics etc. These are some example that can be best implemented by on the jobTo training. 2. Outline your understanding of the term “off the job” training. Provide at least 3 examples of training that you would consider being more effective if carried out off-the-job. Off-the-job training, as its name is showing that it is the training done on behalf of employers that is conducted away from their premises. It basically helps employees to learn both the theory (background knowledge) and practical training and it can also be GET YOUR WORK DONE BY
  16. 16. GET YOUR WORK DONE BY included the assessment and examinations. Although it is usually delivered on the premises of the provider but it often includes online learning in the workplace and guests speakers from provider staff to the employer visits in order to deliver aspects of training.  Well-managed and delivered off-the-job training rs  Good off-the-job practical teaching  Good off-the-job training resources pe  Good standards of off-the-job teaching and learning The best examples of the trainings that if be implemented to the off the job training that Pa can be successful are: the lectures and demonstrations, simulations, role-plays and games, self-study and attending external courses etc. 3. Outline your understanding of the term “Coaching” and “mentoring” de and provide a scenario for both where you feel each approach would be suitable. ra Coaching is the method of training in which we:  Directs, instructs and trains a person or group of people, with the direction to achieve some goal or develop specific skills.pG  This direction includes motivational speaking.  And the training includes seminars, workshops, and supervised practice.  In this method goals are defined first.To As the mentoring is concern it has some senior junior relationship:  It includes one high experienced person in relation to less experienced persons.  It’s an f form of relationship building.  In this high experienced managers develop low experience mangers in certain capacity. If we take an example of the call centre where the call representatives responds to the customer complaints and offer their product. There is always a need of coaching and GET YOUR WORK DONE BY
  17. 17. GET YOUR WORK DONE BY mentoring. In this senior representatives give tips to the junior representatives. And they set goals and target about their sales and call in the coaching session to better polish their performances and make them efficient. Session 10 rs Using the above information, create a brief email proposal to your manager to obtain approval for a construction safety awareness training course which is required for 10 people who will work on a construction site operated by your pe organization. This course is a WA Mandatory requirement and is offered by many training organizations. You will need to find out if this course is subject to any training grants. Dear Sir, Pa In the most of the organizations like us are using different safety awareness training de course now a days. This is becoming more famous due to the employees rights and the essential needs for the business performances. We are also planning to have the WA mandatory training programs for our 10 most rated employees about the safety awareness. This training session is compulsory because, all we need is the efficiency ra and effectiveness in our projects. And whenever the employee has a fear regarding safety, his performance may be effected by these factors. So when they’ll have trainingpG session, automatically they will gain a confidence in their work and they will more efficiency. Due to this significant importance and to save legal costs, we want to launch this training. For that purpose we’ll need certain funds for the costs associated with safety and health training could include like:To  Costs associated with engaging a trainer provider  Costs associated with provision of training manuals and materials.  Cost of venue hire to conduct training.  Cost of replacing employees for the duration of training.  Cost of transport to and from training location.  Cost of refreshments required throughout training.  Cost of subscription or licensing required throughout training (if required). GET YOUR WORK DONE BY
  18. 18. GET YOUR WORK DONE BY After this training session we will able to better communicate with the clients and to have the better understanding regarding their needs and requirements. Similarly the efficiency will improve that will increase the productivity within a span of time. So it will also reduce the cost. These are the basic benefits that we can attain from this training session. All we require from you to allocate funds for this training session from the BCTIF. So we can attain the high level of professionalism. rs Thank you very much. pe Session 11 1. How is routine workplace safety inspections carried out at the organization? Pa In the organization I have been working follows a numbers of steps while taking consideration of the safety inspection.

Remember, you will need to present your rationale behind each method. As the manual handling is concern, in this we will be accepting the substitute for this de method. By this way we’ll be accepting another system that will help us to control the system through machinery and robots. By this way we can handle them easily. And there would be lesser chances for the loss b/c man can do mistakes but machines remains precise about their works. For the second problem that is about the harm effects due to laceration to ra hands and arms, we’ll be providing the isolated hazard system where we will restrict the areas of the machinery and administrative control will be implemented there to have a better control over the loss. By this way proper training and isolation will provide employeespG safety regarding laceration on arms and hands. For the last problems we’ll be using electrical control over the plants and machinery.
