You must successfully complete each section of this assessment. If your answers are assessed as being ‘Not yet satisfactory’, you will be asked to resubmit
your work.
Assessment checklist
• Ensure all material is referenced appropriately including all websites and images.
• Any photographic evidence that you use should always be captioned describing the purpose of each image.
• Acceptable file type for submission includes word or pdf. Where possible include all parts of the assessment in one file. Should you need to attach multiple files please compile/compress them as a ‘zip’ folder.
• Preferred submission of completed assessment is electronic via the OLS.What you have to do

There are two parts to this assessment:

You need to submit separate files or links to one (1) sample each of a COMPLETED SDS, SWMS and SOP. Not a blank template.
You are not required to create your own. All you need to do is search on the internet for examples that someone else has created. A good starting example is “Chainsaw SOP”.
Note: Many commercial operations now use standard safety procedures, which may occur in a range of different forms:
You will find information about these types of documents in your Learning Resource and on the websites such as the Safework NSW website and other equivalent interstate websites.Entire documents can be uploaded or add your direct links here to these documents.

In this part, you are required to identify workplace hazards and develop strategies to enable you and your team to work safely.
The document “How to manage work health and safety risks – Code of practice” from NSW SafeWork will help you with this task. https://www.safework.nsw.gov.au/
Using the attached worksheets (see following pages), identify ten (10) workplace hazards that are commonly associated with a horticultural workplace and provide the
information required about each. You do not have to work in the industry to complete this. However, you need to acquire a good working knowledge of the work tasks and
hazards associated with the horticultural workplace and/or general horticulture industry.
NB You must select at least one (1) from each category in the list below (ten {10} categories in total):
• Chemical hazards including use of herbicides & pesticides and fertilisers, exposure to fuels, solvents, dust, vapours etc.; smoke inhalation etc.
• Electrical exposure directly or indirectly.
• Machinery and equipment (Plant) including use of tools and equipment. Being hit by vehicles or injured by moving parts.
• Physical hazards including exposure to loud noise, poor lighting, radiation,vibration etc.
• Biological hazards microorganisms this might include exposure to soil or mulch borne bacteria; infectious diseases. Also includes animals such as spiders, snakes and stinging/biting insects etc.
• Manual handling incurred from trying to move loads that are too heavy or awkward, repetitive movements.
• Working at heights such as use of ladders or tree climbing work.
• Psychological hazards caused by a difficult or stressful work environment, work related fatigue and bullying.
• Gravity Falling objects, falls, slips and trips of people can cause major injuries.
• Extreme temperatures heat stroke, fatigue, or cold such as frostbite.
There may be other work-specific hazards that need special consideration but are not listed above e.g.:
• Radiation solar, ultraviolet, microwave and lasers etc. As you may not actually be working on the site you will have to use some imagination to decide on the range of work operations that would normally be carried out on the nominated worksite.
You may have to carry out a little research to locate information about work hazards.

To enable you to complete the Risk Assessment Worksheet attached, please review
the following terminology:
• Task - The job that is being undertaken.
• Hazard - A situation, environment or item that has the potential to harm a person.
• Harm - The injury/illness, which is inflicted.
• Likelihood of harm - Possibility that injury or illness may occur based on the
regularity of the task carried out and resulting past injuries or illness. Use one of
these terms:
? Certain to occur - expected to occur in most circumstances
? Very likely - will probably occur in most circumstances
? Possible - might occur occasionally
? Unlikely - could happen at some time
? Rare - may happen only in exceptional circumstances.
• Level of risk - The severity of harm (e.g. death, serious injury, mild injury or illness) that might occur when exposed to a hazard.• Risk Control safety strategy - List all hazard mitigation strategies that you think could be employed on the site to minimise the risk to health and safety. Eliminating a hazard will also remove any risks associated with that hazard. Your strategy may refer to any documents that are available for this type of risk such as Safety Data Sheets (SDSs); Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs); or Safe Work Method Statements (SWMSs). You should also list the source of these documents.
