You have been contracted by Australian Hardware to design and implement a WHS management system for the organisation. You have developed and implemented your WHS risk management policy and procedures in consultation with workers and their representatives. After successfully piloting the program at the Wollongong Store, you have implemented the program nationwide.The main needs of Australian Hardware with respect to the proposed system, are:legal compliance across jurisdictionssafest possible workplace conditions for workers objective: bring LTIFR and Injury Rate (IR) to 10% below national averages (Last year LTIFR = 13.9; IR = 2.0)integration with all other Australian Hardware management systems, operations and corporate cultureadvertise and demonstrate Australian Hardware commitment to WHS.It is now the end of the first year of implementation and you have data to determine the success of the program.You will need to analyse the data, plan improvements to the system, and plan any required training/induction.

Workers as well as those in supervisory positions would benefit from basic safety awareness/reporting training. All training/induction would need to be based on national standards and legislation as much as possible. Training/induction should focus on areas of high incidence rates.
