a) Discuss the scenario above and list the types of WHS issues that Roger and his team may need to be aware of on an outside location such as a park. (Guide: minimum of 4 points) - Biological: mould, blood and other bodily fluids, harmful plants, sewage, dust and vermin. - Physical: heights, noise. - Safety: unsafe working conditions such as uneven surfaces, wet areas, cables that can cause tripping. - Exposure to animals and vegetation: If not properly controlled, this exposure can result in a range of health impacts, including allergic diseases. b) In small groups review the scenario above and hazards and risks listed in point a) above, role-play a hazard / risk assessment in a simulated hospitality venue as directed by your assessor and complete the enclosed risk assessment form. (Guide: your assessor will observe your ability to participate in this role-play, complete an observation checklist below and provide you with feedback) (SHORT) Hosting an event outdoors exposes attendees and workers to biological hazards such as harmful plants, mold, secretions, or external body fluids when coughing, sneezing, or even urinating outdoors. In addition, mounting equipment for an event on uneven terrain can cause falls, trips and accidents for both workers and attendees. There may even be humid areas that, when in contact with electrical cables, pose an imminent risk of accidents due to electrocution. All these risks can occur for both workers and assistants, since they are sharing the same area. So measures to decrease risk should be applied to everyone present. The geographical area should be examined for harmful fauna and flora and attendees should be encouraged to stay away from them. The electrical system, cables and others must be in excellent condition, check electrical connections and isolate from wet areas or water sources. 1.19 Refer to the hospitality industry, conduct your own research and explain your understanding of the following basic aspects of industrial relations. (Long) Award provisions In simple terms, awards set the minimum standards that an employer in your industry is allowed to pay for your kind of work. More technically, it's a legal ruling which grants all employees in one industry or employer the same conditions of employment and wages. Awards are designed to protect employees' wages and conditions. Awards cover things like pay, overtime rates and conditions, special leave arrangements, special allowances and hours of work. They identify conditions over and above the minimum required by legislation. Equal employment opportunity (EEO) law Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) is the principle that everyone can have equal access to employment opportunities based on merit, without fear of discrimination or harassment. The Australian Federal Government has passed numerous laws which aim to protect people from discrimination within the workplace. These include the: Sex Discrimination Act 1984; Disability Discrimination Act 1992; Age SITHIND002 Assessment tasks V2 Issued 25/03/2019 page 15 of 34

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
