WHS risk management

Roads and Maritime focus is to eliminate risks first.

Risk management is a systematic process that ensures WHS risks are identified, assessed, controlled and reviewed. WHS risk management:

  • Raises awareness of existing hazards, reasonably foreseeable risks and critical controls at an agency and divisional level
  • Ensures a systematic and consistent approach to monitoring and managing risk

Establishes a structure for the reporting of safety information.

Roads and Maritime provides guidance on establishing arrangements for WHS consultation with workers and resolving issues. These arrangements enable:

  • Effective consultation with workers about WHS matters
  • Worker participation in WHS activities

Appropriate representation of workers’ perspectives in decision making about WHS matters.
