The trainer assists work teams to assess their hazardous manual tasks and develop control ideas
The risk assessment is done through:
analysing video footage/observation of the chosen high risk manual task(s) or an on-the-job task
using the PErforM risk assessment tool to identify controls.
Work teams that have been identified in the implementation plan are trained in the PErforM risk assessment method by the nominated workplace trainer(s).
The teams training workshop should include some practice at performing a risk assessment on a problem workplace manual task using the PErforM risk assessment tool. Workplace video or an on-the job review of a job or task is particularly useful for this skills activity.
