Unit Summary

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to develop, implement and maintain a Work Health and Safety management system (WHSMS) or parts of a WHSMS.

It applies to individuals with organisational responsibilities and who have advanced practical knowledge required to coordinate, facilitate and maintain the WHS program in an organisation.

NOTE: The terms 'occupational health and safety' (OHS) and 'work health and safety' (WHS)

are equivalent and generally either can be used in the workplace. In jurisdictions where the Model WHS Legislation has not been implemented RTOs are advised to contextualise the unit of competency by referring to the existing State/Territory OHS legislative requirements.

Prerequisite Units

There are no recommended pre-requisite units for this competency.

Reassessment of Result and Academic Appeal Procedure

If a student is not happy with his/ her results, that student may appeal against their grade via a written letter, clearly stating the grounds of appeal to the Director of Studies. This should be submitted after completion of the subject and within fourteen days of commencement of the new term.

Reassessment:

If a student does not qualify for resubmission or is still deemed Not Yet Competent (NYC) after the resubmission, they will need to go through the reassessment process. To qualify for reassessment, the student must have completed and submitted the required assessments for the unit of competency as per the unit assessment schedule. Student will get three reassessments attempt, without any additional penalty/ fee. 

Reassessment will occur only for those assessment tasks in which the student is deemed NYC. Reassessment is a formal process and student must apply for reassessment through Request for Reassessment Form available from the reception. ON approval and payment of reassessment fees, a reassessment schedule will be advised.

If still failed in three reassessment attempts, the student will need to repeat (re-sit) the unit.

Re-sit (or Repeat): 

The student will need to re-sit the unit in the following term/semester if they are not deemed eligible for any of the above post-assessment options; i.e., both the options of resubmission and reassessment have been exhausted. The student will also need to re-sit the unit if the result from reassessment is still Not Yet Competent (NYC).

Re-sit may result in extension of course duration and may affect student’s original completion date of the course. 

Student will need to pay a pro rata fee of the course fee to re-sit for the unit. Student should contact the admin department if he/she remains NYC after 3 attempts of reassessment. Admin team/ student support officer will liaise with accounts and academic team and issue the special training plan and the invoice for the resit attempt to the student. Student will be advised if there is a need to amend the CoE at this stage.  

If a course is extended by an academic term, a pro-rata term fee based on total course fee will apply as per the course fees specified in the International Student Agreement.

Resit mean repeating the entire unit of competency

Resit is a formal process and student will be advised of their resit options once all the term results are published. In the event where a student has been deemed NYC in 50% or more units within a study period, they will be asked to attend a course progress interview and go through the course progress process according to college’s Course Progress Policy.

Late Submission Fee: A late fee of $100 per unit will be charged if students fail to submit assessments on due dates.

Absentees: Students are absent on the day of the assessment without prior approval or a valid reason (e.g. medical certificate) will be marked Not Yet Competent and will be subject to college’s Course Progress Policy.

Academic Appeals

A student may appeal against a decision in writing to the Academic Manager within 2 (two) weeks of publication of the final results.

If the appeal is in respect of an assessment or an outcome from the reassessment process, a review of available information/data is conducted within a reasonable timeframe by the course coordinator in consultation with CEO. The appellant will be given the opportunity to formally present his/her case. This is designed to ensure fairness and consistency and underpins the continuous improvement process. If the appeal is to dispute the outcome of a complaint other than an assessment, the appeal will be scheduled to be heard by an independent person or panel, inviting the appellant to formally present his/her case.

Upon a decision being made, the appellant is provided with a written statement of the appeal outcomes, including reasons for the decision. Please refer to the Complaints & Appeals Policy for further details. Student Declaration

“I understand all the above rules and guidelines for the assessment”.

Assessment Process

To demonstrate competence in this unit, you must undertake all tasks in this assessment booklet and complete them satisfactorily and in addition, also satisfactorily complete the practical assessment, including demonstrating communication skills during the practical activities. If you do not answer some questions or perform some tasks satisfactorily and therefore are deemed to be ‘Not Competent’, you may be asked supplementary questions or given alternative activities to determine competence, which will be documented in your student file. After you have demonstrated consistency in performance you will be awarded this unit.

As part of the assessment process, you must abide by any relevant assessment policies as provided to you. If you feel you are not yet ready to be assessed or this assessment is unfair, please discuss with your assessor all options that are available to you to enable you to complete the assessment.

Submitting Assessments
