Instructions

Grow Management Consultants is a management consultancy business.

Staff employed in the business include the CEO, Operations Manager, two Senior Management Consultants and an Administration Officer. There are also three management consultant contractors who work from the office at least 2 days a week each, as well as from home. All of the management consultants travel extensively across Australia visiting clients.

Grow Management Consultants has an existing Health and Safety Policy and Procedure but as the organisation has expanded and health and safety legislation has changed over the years, the CEO believes that it is time to update the Policy and Procedure.

The CEO has indicated that he does not want to incur any additional costs in implementing the WHS/OHS management system and wants to incorporate WHS/OHS responsibilities into existing staff roles.

The CEO has identified that the areas that need updating are as follows:

  • Include definitions of duty holders under WHS/OHS legislation
  • Types of hazard inspections need to be broadened to include pre-operation and regular inspections, as well as working from home inspections (see below).
  • WHS/OHS Communication and Consultation Arrangements – the current Health and Safety Policy refers to the need to consult with workers, but the WHS procedure does not say how it will occur. Suitable communication and consultation arrangements need to be identified for Grow Management Consultants and procedures developed. These arrangements also need to be in accordance with legislative requirements.
  • While the current policy and procedure refers to hazard identification and risk control generally, it has been identified that there are no specific procedures with regard to working from home health and safety requirements. As working from home is a common practice for the management consultants, this needs to be addressed. A procedure needs to be developed, as well as a checklist.
  • The policy and procedure does not address the requirement to ensure that where there are changes to a work procedure or system that a hazard identification is conducted to identify and new hazards that may be created and ways to control these.

As the Operations Manager you are responsible for researching, developing and implementing the above changes. You will also need to ensure that any new procedures added include which staff member is responsible.

  1. Develop a working from home health and safety checklist.
