Identify, Assess and Control Risks in the Workplace

This unit covers the knowledge required to identify workplace hazards, assess the risk of those hazards, and eliminate or control the risk. Risk management is essential to be compliant with Work Health and Safety (WHS) legislation, which imposes obligations on all Australian businesses to manage the safety of all people in the workplace. This includes workers, visitors and customers. In the service industry, the workplace includes any location where the business operates.
