Welcome to the unit AHCWHS201 Participate in work health and safety processes - (Release 1).
This unit of competency describes the skills and knowledge required to recognise and report hazards in the workplace. It also describes the skills and knowledge required to follow workplace safety procedures and directions.
This unit is applicable to supervised workers who are required to follow work health and safety policies and procedures.
All work must be carried out in accordance with enterprise procedures, recommended safe practices and the relevant legislation.
This unit applies to individuals who work under general supervision and exercise limited autonomy with some accountability for their own work. They identify and provide solutions to a limited range of predictable problems.
NOTE: The terms 'occupational health and safety' (OHS) and 'work health and safety' (WHS) and occupational safety and health (OSH) 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 and Territory OHS legislative requirements.
No occupational licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
This learning guide is broken into four sections and covers:
1. Introduction to legislation and duty of care
2. Follow workplace procedures for hazard identification and risk control
3. Observe safe practices during work operations
4. Participate in arrangements for maintaining the health and safety of all people in the workplace
