Assessment Tasks

1 Portfolio

Assessment Title
Design a Risk Management Manual

Task Description

Design a Risk Management Manual, consult on its development and review part of the manual for its effectiveness for a workplace, sporting club or volunteer organisation.

Word count: There is no particular word limit for this assessment piece because the target is to be comprehensive in completing a template (Risk Management Manual) provided in Moodle with contextualised, user friendly information for the selected workplace, sporting club or volunteer organisation. All sections included in the manual must be completed. The input (additions made to the template) is likely to be in the order of approximately 2000 words (i.e., those portions added to the existing template).
Total weighting: 40%


PART A: Design a Risk Management Manual to manage WHS/OHS risks in a systematic way
Design a Risk Management Manual that aims to systematically prescribe how different WHS/OHS risks will be managed in an organisation of your choice. A Risk Management Manual is designed to contribute to the development, implementation and evaluation of a systematic approach to WHS risk management in an organisation. This manual intends to prescribe when, why and how risk management activities will be conducted within the organisation to help manage risk.
Use the template provided in Moodle (ABC Trading Safety and Health Risk Management Manual) as a guide. All sections included in the manual must be completed (addressed) with information customised to the characteristics and needs of the organisation. Provide evidence of your involvement in its development (i.e., document owner, part of a review team/panel, meeting minutes, email correspondence).
Note: You may modify a pre-existing resource to design your own Risk Management Manual but it must at least address equivalent information to that provided in the template.

Weighting: 20%


Part B: Consult on the development of the Risk Management Manual
In conjunction with the development of the Risk Management Manual, demonstrate how effective consultation and participation might occur in the development of the manual. Provide a timeline and samples of consultation that reflect how the framework and details for the manual have been (or would be) developed and implemented (rolled out) over time. This could be in the form of diary entries, emails, minutes of meetings or some other formats. Provide an explanation to support how consultation was conducted.
The rationale here is to demonstrate how you would use consultation and associated communication skills to conduct effective meetings, communicate effectively with personnel at different levels of the organisation, and with external parties and individuals in the development of the manual.

Weighting: 10%


Part C: Develop criteria to measure the effectiveness of the manual
Prepare a one-page plan (i.e. a table format would be suitable) that aims to review the effectiveness of one risk management activity within the Risk Management Manual. Criteria should be drawn from the risk management process, material provided in Moodle and from standards such as SA/SNZ HB 205:2017 Managing health and safety related risk.

Academic Integrity Statement

As a CQUniversity student you are expected to act honestly in all aspects of your academic work.

Any assessable work undertaken or submitted for review or assessment must be your own work. Assessable work is any type of work you do to meet the assessment requirements in the unit, including draft work submitted for review and feedback and final work to be assessed.

When you use the ideas, words or data of others in your assessment, you must thoroughly and clearly acknowledge the source of this information by using the correct referencing style for your unit. Using others’ work without proper acknowledgement may be considered a form of intellectual dishonesty.

Participating honestly, respectfully, responsibly, and fairly in your university study ensures the CQUniversity qualification you earn will be valued as a true indication of your individual academic achievement and will continue to receive the respect and recognition it deserves.

As a student, you are responsible for reading and following CQUniversity’s policies, including the Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure. This policy sets out CQUniversity’s expectations of you to act with integrity, examples of academic integrity breaches to avoid, the processes used to address alleged breaches of academic integrity, and potential penalties.

What is a breach of academic integrity?

A breach of academic integrity includes but is not limited to plagiarism, self-plagiarism, collusion, cheating, contract cheating, and academic misconduct. The Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure defines what these terms mean and gives examples.

Why is academic integrity important?

A breach of academic integrity may result in one or more penalties, including suspension or even expulsion from the University. It can also have negative implications for student visas and future enrolment at CQUniversity or elsewhere. Students who engage in contract cheating also risk being blackmailed by contract cheating services.

What can you do to act with integrity?

Where can I get assistance?

For academic advice and guidance, the Academic Learning Centre (ALC) can support you in becoming confident in completing assessments with integrity and of high standard.
