The first step is to make all staff aware of risks and hazards and educate them on these, following the WHS recommendations. The fire risks class B are highest and most probable, with the highest damage; the requisite fire fighting equipment should be procured and staff trained.. this should be done within a fortnight at all the stations. The training will require emergency procedures, including evacuation and treating victims. Class K fires risks should be managed by training the employees in the kitchen, then having class K fire fighting equipment, and how to use them. The kitchens should be fitted with automatic smoke detectors; this should happen within a month. Fire alarms must be installed with the fire fighting equipment. Personal injuries due to lifting or frost bites are less severe but have a high likelihood of occurrence; PPE should be acquired for the staff and trained on their use. Rules for manual handling should also be set and workers trained to use them. Fumes from petrol and refrigerants are a low level risk but can be mitigated through regular inspections of storage tanks and refrigeration equipment
Actions taken to control WHS risks
All staff must know and understand their responsibilities for ensuring WHS
management commitment key to managing hazards
Follow a defined step-wise process for managing risk; identify hazards, undertake risk assessments, control the risks, review the risk control measures.
WHS requires extensive consultation with workers, colleagues, and relevant authorities.
The first step entailed developing a training needs plan based on findings and a training needs analysis conducted. Analysis undertaken using a spreadsheet (shown below)
This is done for all departments and branches
A training plan was then developed based on the needs analysis listing the required type of training, the time frames, location of training, and if specialists will be required. Training was completed within 12 months
A training schedule was then developed and utilized in planning training delivery, following a hierarchy (risk hierarchy)
Measurement and Evaluation of WHSMS in Line With the Plans of GoFuel
GoFuel has a demonstrated and well constructed framework for incident reporting which is already operational; for instance, with a total of 93 incidents reported, ranging from fuel spillages on customers to burns from ovens with 34.5 days being lost. The responsibility for reporting has been also not been assigned to a competent person, with Jim, who handled matters of healthy and safety when GoFuel was still running just a single outlet playing the role at the moment. This conforms to the requirement of reporting and measurement and using statistics as the basis fr making changes to OHS at the workplace.
However, there is no system for inspection and testing environment, procedures and plant at the ISS stores. Further, the responsibility for ensuring testing and inspection of the environment, plant, and procedures has not been assigned to any competent person,
