You should use an essay structure, which includes an introduction, body and conclusion, organised into paragraphs. Your conclusion should summarise your essay’s main argument, which should critically evaluate the different ideas your essay covers.
The Question For The Essay Is Given Below:
Employee WHS and risk management
The NSW Rural Fire Service is the world’s largest firefighting organisation, with over 72,000 volunteer firefighters and over 900 paid management and administration staff.
Critically evaluate the ethical and workplace safety obligations the NSW Rural Fire Service has to its staff and volunteers, and evaluate the main risks the organization must manage – and how – to meet these obligations. Begin by assessing the obligations the RFS has to its paid staff and volunteers, including identifying any relevant differences in these obligations.
Your answer should consider legal requirements under relevant WHS legislation, and also ethical arguments for and against organizations taking responsibility for the safety of employees and/or volunteers. Finally, use the COSO framework to conduct an enterprise risk management assessment of the key risks the NSW RFS might face in keeping its employees and/or volunteers safe and how it could adequately manage these risks. Your essay should conclude by identifying the most significant ethical and/or risk management issues the NSW RFS faces, and propose management practices or strategies to address them.
