BSBWHS605 Develop, implement and maintain WHS management systems
Assessment Task 3
Pitstop is a privately owned company that until recently operated one independent service station in Melbourne’s north. The owner, chairman and CEO, Jim Murphy, has run the company for the past five years. He has operated service stations for most of the last 25 years and relies on his hands-on approach to monitor and instruct staff on what to do.
In the past eight months, Pitstop has raised sufficient finance to buy out the Independent Service Station (ISS) chain of nine stores across Victoria, NSW and Queensland and rebrand them all as Pitstop. Jim plans to continue the expansion until the optimum target of 30 service stations is secured for the Victoria, NSW and Queensland market.

It has been six months since the implementation of the WHS management system across all stores at Pitstop.
