Organisational Policies and Procedures for hazard management
With the consultation, the organisation can more easily control the WHS. The roles and responsibilities can be identified and communicated with the team. Without consultation, confusions and miscommunications can occur much more frequently. The team members also less understand of the reasons why they must do these roles and responsibilities.
On-the-Job Training allows employees to learn by actually performing a specific job or task. The employee will perform the job and learn as he goes. On-the-job training can be structured by using hands-on application supported by classroom-type instruction. It can also be unstructured using only hands-on application.
Job Rotation teaches current employees how to do various jobs over time. The employee will rotate around to different jobs within the organization, performing various different tasks unrelated to his original job.
Job Mentoring involves providing an employee with an experienced coach to oversee his or her learning experience. The mentor or coach provides advice and instruction, but is not performing the job with the employee as in on-the-job training. The trainee employee learns the job firsthand and may consult the mentor or coach at any time for assistance.

Inadequacies of Risk Controls
Hierarchy of controls
The hierarchy of controls is as follows:
1. Eliminate the hazard altogether.
2. Substitute the hazard with a safer alternative.
3. Isolate the hazard from anyone who could be harmed.
4. Use engineering controls to reduce the risk.
5. Use administrative controls to reduce the risk.
6. Use personal protective equipment (PPE).
Incident and accident reporting
My workplace has a log book which all the hazard control and risk assessments have been recorded. This is necessary for future references, if the same or similar situation occurs there will be records of how the situation was best resolved and controlled.
Reporting incidents and injuries is necessary in any situation. It is a legal requirement and must be followed. My workplace procedure to report these incidents and injuries is in a log book as well. The incidents are written down with a short detail and the time and date next to it. The controls and methods used to handle the incident is also record for future use.
