RIIRIS402D – Carry out the Risk Management Processes
This course is often referred to as the G2 and will deliver to you the knowledge and skills to perform risk management processes in coal and metalliferous mining.
Carrying out the risk management process – quick overview.
Applying the concepts learned in this course in the workplace
First you’ll concentrate on a specific area of the workplace to apply the process. This could be in a machinery workshop, a wash plant, haul truck maintenance, haul truck roads, machinery and plant etc.
When you’ve decided on the area of concern, you’ll create a risk management plan.
Now you’ve created your plan, the next step is to identify the hazards in the workplace, then assess the immediate risks. This is is where your keen eye, awareness and foresight come into play.
When the risk has been identified, you’ll now be ready to decide what needs to be done to prevent the risk turning into an accident.
With the risk being identified and a clear plan of what to do next, decisive action will be taken to make the workplace safe.
As someone who has taken it upon themselves to deliver the previous steps, your responsibility now will be to review what you have implemented and confirm the workplace is safe by carrying out an audit. As always, the final action is to record the entire process in the form of a report.
That’s basically a quick overview of what this course will cover.
Completion of this course will compliment your current quaifications if you’re already working in the mining and resource sector in a role as a Supervisor; or if you are an existing employee considering a move into a supervisory role. Combining the Supervisor and Carry out the Risk Management Processes course is a step in the right direction if you want to get ahead.
This interactive course is designed to give participants greater insight into risks and the impact it has on mining operations.
There are 10 areas of study in this course;
1. Plan and prepare for implementing the risk management process
– Access, interpret and apply risk management documentation and ensure the work activity is compliant
– Identify and determine the process to be used for risk management
– Identify, develop and document parameters of the risk assessment task
– Access, interpret and apply the data required to complete the risk assessment task
2. Identify hazards
– Identify and confirm types of potential hazards by reference to site circumstances, history and/or precedence
– Establish and communicate to others the process for hazard identification
– Undertake routine hazard identification
– Add to the hazard identification process any potential variations from changes to work practices, systems or technology
– Analyse the hazard identification process or parts of the process, to identify and prepare written documents to communicate loss scenarios
3. Assess risk
– Determine the likelihood of the loss scenario
– Analyse and determine the consequence if the loss scenario should occur
– Determine the risk level of the loss scenario
4. Identify unacceptable risk
– Source or determine site criteria for assessing the acceptability of risks in conjunction with the appropriate party
– Determine the risk level or score
– Seek expert advice and clarify findings which are ambiguous, unclear or of doubtful accuracy
5. Identify potential actions
– Identify potential actions
– Identify existing controls
– Identify, analyse and document the range of risk controls for identified unacceptable risks
– Identify risk control options using the hierarchy of controls, considering operational effectiveness
– Verify feasible options for risk control by preliminary analysis and consideration
6. Decide on action
– Select most appropriate risk controls for the situation from the feasible options
– Clarify the decision and confirm the selected course of action following analysis of resource requirements, cost, safety and welfare issues within site constraints
– Prepare written document outlining the selected course of action and resources required
7. Implement or facilitate action
– Implement directly, or facilitate through others, the course of action plans
– Maintain the standards for safety regulations and procedures
– Communicate to all parties relevant information related to the new/revised work procedures and action plans
– Reinforce requirements through observing the impact of information and implemented action plans
– Coach others to effectively carry out action plans
8. Review the implementation of action
– Determine and facilitate an ongoing review process to ensure implementation and application plans for risk controls
– Routinely review process, actions and controls to ensure continuing effectiveness in the changing work environment
– Respond to, or refer to the appropriate party for follow-up action, anomalies and shortcomings identified during the review process
9. Audit the risk management process
– Conduct audits of risk management processes and work procedures and amend accordingly
– Consult with others to identify issues to action plans
– Respond to changed requirements identified during audits in a systematic and timely manner
– Complete and retain all written risk management documentation covering the reason for, and changes made
10. Complete records and reports
– Produce and process and all written risk management documentation and reports
– Maintain all written risk management documentation and reports
