Task 1 – Safe Design Standard Operating Procedure

This assessment task requires the development of a Standard Operating Procedure for inclusion of safety in design. You should refer to the examples (Queensland Urban Utilities and Australian Rail Track Corporation ATRC) as a basis for the document you produce.

Assume you are engaged by a civil engineering organisation that undertakes civil engineering and design for public infrastructure works. As part of meeting your obligations under the WHS Act and Regulations 2011 you are required to prepare a safety report and issue this to the client where the client is a Person Conducting A Business or Undertaking (PCBU). The aim of this report is to help prevent possibly future injuries or death by identifying, assessing and eliminating hazards or potential risks at the design stage. You also have a legal obligation to do this under the legislation, specifically regulation 295 of the WHS Regulation 2011. You also have an obligation under section 22 of the WHS Act to provide information on how you have designed the structure to be without risk to health and safety during construction, maintenance, use and demolition to anyone who is issued with a copy of the design. This information can be incorporated into the safe design report required under the WHS Regulation. Your standard operating procedure document must ensure these requirements are met in the designs developed by your organisation.

Observation Checklist

Observation CriteriaSNS
Advised decision-makers of their duties under WHS laws to manage WHS risks throughout a product’s life cycle  
Sourced and made available to decision-makers the most current information and data on WHS principles, materials, technology and systems that apply to product design  
Advised on methods and tools that can support WHS hazard identification and WHS risk assessment throughout a product’s life cycle  
Identified and addressed learning and development needs of decision- makers to manage WHS risks that may arise during a product’s life cycle, including during its design phase  
Advised on consultation with known and/or potential users of the product during the design phase, according to organisational policies and procedures  
Identified situations where specialist and other advisers may be required to support safe design activities  
Advised on selection and implementation of required WHS risk controls in design, based on the hierarchy of control measures  
Advised on documentation requirements relating to decision-making during risk assessment process  
Advised on establishment of a residual WHS risk register and distribution of this information to those involved in downstream or subsequent product life-cycle stages  
Advised on monitoring the design as it evolves, to identify and manage potential WHS hazards that may arise during product life cycle and their associated risks  
Identified and addressed learning and development needs of decision- makers in relation to managing design-related WHS risks in a product’s life cycle  
Observation CriteriaSNS
Supported decision-makers in considering the needs of those using or interacting with product throughout its life cycle  
Facilitated involvement of technical experts as required according to organisational processes and procedures  
Advised on consultation arrangements with required personnel during all phases of design process to identify WHS hazards and control WHS risks that may occur throughout a product’s life cycle  
Advised on communicating residual WHS risks in product to those who will use or interact with the product throughout its life cycle  
Advised decision-makers involved in purchasing and contractual arrangements to include requirements to identify WHS hazards and control WHS risks, and to provide information and data on residual WHS risks as part of procurement process
