Expanding the Individual WHS Units

I am really noticing the increase in the number of enquiries since the holiday period is over.  Last week I went to the dentist and turned the phone on to silent.  During the 1.5 hours I was in the chair 3 new RTOs called me.  Thank you to everyone who has contacted me and can I just say that if I don’t answer the phone right away please do leave a message and I will get back to you.  Either that or send me a quick email.  I will always call you back.

Several of the RTOs who have already purchased the resources for BSB41412 Cert IV in Work Health and Safety asked whether I am going to develop the other electives.  In particular they want the two WHS electives BSBWHS408A Assist with effective WHS management of contractors and BSBWHS409A Assist with workplace monitoring processes.  As a result, I analysed these units and came to a number of conclusions which I then discussed with current clients.

For the contractor management unit, one of the critical aspects of evidence is: assisting with identifying existing contractor WHS arrangements, in the workplace.  This means it can’t be assessed in a workshop environment.  For the workplace monitoring unit, one of the critical aspects of evidence is: assisting with the use of appropriate equipment to monitor selected agents and/or conditions in the workplace.  The context of assessment does say that a simulated workplace is acceptable but nevertheless I think this unit would be difficult to assess in a workshop environment.

Further discussion with clients in relation to their training and assessment strategy indicated that their prospective candidates for these units were all in employment, working in an environment where these tasks are part of their job role.  On this basis I have now developed RPL tools for these two units.  I won’t be developing training and assessment resources for them.

Some RTOs have swapped out TAEASS301B Contribute to assessment for BSBWHS401A BSBWHS401A Implement and monitor WHS policies, procedures and programs to meet legislative requirements.  This unit is on the web site under Certificate IV in Frontline Management.  I recommend that if this unit is used as part of BSB41412 Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety, it should be the first unit delivered, as it gives a nice overview to build upon.

I’ve had requests to develop BSBCMM401A Make a presentation – contextualised to be part of the BSB41412 Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety.  Again, I needed to discuss this with my clients to figure out the best solution.  As a result, I have agreed to produce resources that can be incorporated into the BSB41412 course.  There are already several assessment tasks that require participants to prepare a presentation or information session.  This means that element 1 of the unit “Prepare a Presentation” is already done.  All we then need is for the trainee to deliver two of the presentations and submit a review of delivery to deal with elements 2 and 3.  I will need some short answer questions and some learning material as well but still think I can get this one done by the end of the week.  It’s a unit that I deliver all the time for FLM and TAE trainees so I know it really well.
