Assessment Task 1 BSBWHS501 Ensure a safe workplace Appendix 1: Scenario – Australian Hardware You are a WHS consultant. You are required to propose a WHS management system for the organisation. Australian Hardware has grown to include 138 warehouse stores nationally. Unfortunately, one of the possible results of this rapid expansion is a lack of a standard approach to WHS compliance. The company does take seriously its legal and ethical obligations to provide a safe workplace; however, safety standards may be slipping. According to incomplete Australian Hardware records, last year, the Lost Time to Injury Frequency Rate (LTIFR) was 13.9. The current industry benchmark 10.1 2 . Areas and types of injuries of particular concern include: manual lifting of outdoor furniture and hardware goods in warehouses and in customer service areas hazardous materials handling by forklift drivers, drivers and customer service staff. Because the company hasn’t got any systems for WHS it cannot be sure how good it’s safety and health systems are and if it is compliant The main needs of Australian Hardware with respect to the proposed WHS management system are: legal compliance across jurisdictions the safest possible workplace conditions for workers (objective: bring LTIFR and Injury Rate (IR) to 10% below national averages) works with all other company systems to advertise and demonstrate Australian Hardware’s commitment to WHS. 2 Source: Safe Work Australia, 2013, Australian frequency rates by industry , available online, Safe Work Australia , viewed January 2015, < Documents/National_time_series_freq_rates.pdf>.
