SITXWHS005 Participate in safe work practices

  Activity 1: Safety Induction Meeting 
 Additional ScenarioWhile working in the restaurant, you notice a new intern named Jack exhibiting inappropriate behaviour. He is waving his knife around while chopping, failing to follow safe cutting procedures and making quite a bit of mess in the nearby area with the offcuts. These offcuts are all over the nearby benches and even on the floor. You are his direct supervisor; however, it is well known that he is close friends with the Sous Chef, and when unhappy, he will immediately go and complain to him about the issue. The last supervisor who complained about him was transferred to another restaurant by the Sous Chef. Further, he has a well-known temper, and there are rumours that he physically assaulted another chef at his previous place of employment, resulting in immediate dismissal. You were recently promoted by the restaurant owner due to your work ethic and have been given a direct line of contact him if you need it; as per his instructions, you are required to report any major health issues or concerns to the head chef. However, your direct line manager is the Sous Chef. Normally all problems would need to be discussed with him as the first point of contact. The Head Chef generally does not get involved in such incidents unless they are very serious. She does not take kindly to people wasting her time with minor issues. She has a reputation for being hard but fair when settling problems.
 Your taskPurpose: As the supervisor, it is my responsibility to ensure that all workers in the kitchen follow safe work practices and adhere to the organization’s policy and procedure for health and safety. I have observed Jack, a new intern, exhibiting inappropriate behaviour such as waving his knife around while chopping and making a mess with the offcuts. This poses a hazard to himself and others in the kitchen. I will take immediate action to correct this behaviour by inducting Jack on safe cutting procedures and cleanliness standards in the kitchen. I will also ensure that all necessary information is provided to him, such as the names of the Health and Safety Representative and Management OHS Nominee, hazard and incident reporting procedures, and emergency procedures. In the event that Jack does not improve his behaviour, I will escalate the issue to the Sous Chef as my direct line manager. However, if the issue is not resolved, I will report it to the Head Chef as per the instructions given to me by the restaurant owner. It is important to ensure a safe and secure work environment for all employees in the kitchen. I will continue to monitor Jack’s behaviour and take necessary actions to maintain a safe work environment. Roles and responsibilities Chef: As the Chef, I am responsible for ensuring the safety of all staff in the kitchen, including the new intern, Jack. Upon noticing Jack exhibiting inappropriate behaviour, such as waving his knife around while chopping and making a mess with offcuts, it is my duty to provide training and educate him on safe work practices in the kitchen. I will begin by demonstrating the proper use of knives and the safe cutting procedures that must be followed, according to the organization’s policy and procedure. I will also take the opportunity to explain to Jack the importance of following safe work practices and our obligations under WHS/OHS legislation. Furthermore, I understand the importance of reporting any unsafe work practices, issues, and breaches of health, safety, and security procedures in the workplace. To fulfill this responsibility, I will write an email to my head chef, informing her of Jack’s unsafe behavior and the steps I have taken to address it. Intern: My role is to participate in the practical demonstration provided by the Chef. I will be trained on safe knife usage and the importance of following health, safety, and security procedures in the workplace. I will be expected to follow the Chef’s instructions and perform the tasks as directed by them. Additionally, I will have the opportunity to ask questions and seek clarification on any concerns regarding the safe work practices in the kitchen. In conclusion, as the Chef, I take my role and responsibilities in maintaining a safe and secure working environment very seriously. I am committed to providing training and education to all staff, including Jack, to ensure the continued safety of everyone in the kitchen.  Tasks to be performed

Activity 2: Follow procedures for emergency situations.   
 Additional ScenarioThis scenario is divided into two parts – one action is before the incident and the other action will occur once the emergency incident has been handled by the Chef. Before incident Although you have briefed your staff on proper safety and security procedures, the new intern fails to adhere to the new guidelines and, while working with knives, slices open his hand and is bleeding profusely. As he is in pain and is wildly swinging his hand around, he also knocks a vat of hot oil onto the floor which catches fire. This fire is preventing access to the first aid kit. There is a fire extinguisher located on the wall. After the incident After the incident, you re-enter the premises and immediately realise that your keys are missing (having been lost during the incident) and that the office safe has been opened. There are documents, 5000 dollars of cash and a laptop missing from the safe. After checking the CCTV footage, you identified that the thief was wearing a mask, is of medium build, male and well dressed.
 Your task Purpose: The purpose of this activity is to assess the knowledge and ability of the chef in managing workplace health and safety (WHS/OHS) requirements in the event of an emergency incident and potential security breach. The chef is required to demonstrate their understanding of proper emergency response procedures, hazard management, and security protocols by responding to the scenario outlined. This includes using a fire extinguisher, accessing the first aid kit, checking CCTV footage, reporting the theft, and following proper procedures to secure the premises. The chef’s performance will be evaluated using a performance checklist and their actions will be used to improve safety and security protocols in the workplace. Roles and responsibilities: Chef The role of the chef in this scenario is to demonstrate the proper application of health and safety guidelines and procedures, respond to emergencies, provide first aid to the injured intern, and report the theft incident to the emergency services and superiors.

 Your taskChef As the Chef, it is important to be aware of the various hazards and risks present in the kitchen and to take appropriate measures to minimize these risks. During the health, safety, and security management meeting, you should discuss the hazards you have identified in activities 1, 2 and 3 and suggest improvements to the work practices. This may include suggestions on how to better organize the kitchen, how to reduce slip and trip hazards, how to improve the storage of hazardous materials, and how to better manage the workload of staff. It is also important to consider the role of the restaurant manager in implementing these improvements, and to work together to establish clear lines of responsibility for health and safety in the workplace. Finally, it is important to listen to the suggestions and feedback from other team members and to work together to create a safe and secure work environment for everyone. Restaurant manager Staff member As the chef in this scenario, during the health, safety and security management meeting, I will contribute by sharing my observations and insights from the previous activities, specifically on the identified health and security hazards in the workplace.

I will also identify the person responsible for taking action to address these hazards and set timelines for implementing the necessary changes. I will also address the feedback collected from the intern and discuss any suggestions for improvement proposed by the team member. At the end of the meeting, I will confirm and clarify any doubts the team members may have and take note of any additional suggestions they propose.
