Competency details
BSBWHS505 Investigate WHS incidents
This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to plan, conduct and report on investigations of work health and safety (WHS) incidents that have resulted in, or have the potential to result in, injury or damage.
It covers conducting an initial assessment of the situation; establishing the scope and legal parameters of the investigation; conducting a systematic analysis to identify underlying causes and actions for prevention; and reporting on the outcomes of the investigation appropriate to the potential severity of the incident, which may include accessing specialist expertise.
This unit applies to individuals required to investigate incidents in relation to prevention of future incidents as well as people who work in a range of WHS roles across all industries and who apply a substantial knowledge base and well-developed skills in a wide variety of WHS contexts.
Note: The terms 'occupational health and safety' (OHS) and 'work health and safety' (WHS) are equivalent and generally either can be used in the workplace. In jurisdictions where the Model WHS Legislation has not been implemented, Registered Training Organisations are advised to contextualise the unit of competency by refe
ing to the existing State/Te
itory OHS legislative requirements.

    The following is a summarised version of an interview you have conducted with yourself and a witness to the incident at Le Del

· I was working in the kitchen as a cook
· It was a very busy evening, there was a large function in the restaurant and myself and another cook were working predominately on servicing the function
· I was not directly involved in the incident but did notice it
· One of the other kitchen hands went home at 7pm as they said they had a headache
· I had only worked with Gina once before. She seemed nice and keen to learn and try things but she is young and inexperienced
· I don’t believe that Gina had worked in a hospitality environment before
· I didn’t see Ronaldo ask Gina to empty the deep fryer and steame
· I did see Gina ask another cook where to empty the oil. She specifically asked about oil so the instructions the cook provided were co
ect.
· As far as I know, the contents of the steamer and fryer are not labelled and Gina would not have been told about them during training.

ock Case Study Analysis
Part A – Site Evidence
The incident under focus concerns the a situation wherein the following set of events undertook – [i] One a busy day in the restaurant one of the kitchen hands had to leave early, [ii] Gina, a new joiner with limited to no experience in hospitality sector, was involved in emptying of the oil from the fryer, [iii] The lack of proper visual labelling led to certain confusions leading to Gina making an incident out of the situation.
The key point to note here is that the WHS incident being investigated stems from lack of an integrated WHS process wherein a limited trained and inexperienced staff lacking guidance / management from manager / supervisor, work place lacking safety / guidance visual labelling missing, and, process lacking controls have led to the incident (Carayon et al. 2015; Loeppke et al. 2015; Hale et al. 2015).
However to ensure a comprehensive, detailed and objective review of the situation suitable investigation to collect all required evidences need to be undertaken.
