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.

In order to ensure that the WHSMS and its accompanying documentation will meet the needs and expectations of all Pitstop employees across Victoria, NSW and Queensland, you are piloting your WHSMS implementation in the Wollongong, NSW service station. Pitstop Wollongong is the service station with the most WHS incidents to-date, with a representative workforce of relatively new employees and with only a few long-serving staff.

It has been six months since the implementation of the WHS management system across all stores at Pitstop. The implementation has been carried out concurrently with the expansion of the business, which will soon number 30 stores, growing from a single store two years ago. The number of employees has grown from 20 to 160 over the course of the implementation of the WHSMS.
