Early 2016 the WorkSafe Western Australia Commissioner and senior WorkSafe officers presented a number of seminars, in the metropolitan area and three regional locations, to registered High Risk Work Licence (HRWL) assessors (assessors).  At the seminars, assessors were provided with advice about complying with the requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Regulations 1996.  These sessions covered the following topics:

  • Critical questions – When the response to critical questions are not comparable to the National Assessment Instrument;
  • Calculation Assessment – The requirement for formulas to be shown to determine how they derive the answer in line with the National Assessment Instrument;
  • Optional questions – Where multiple options exist, the assessors is to clearly mark the option to be answered as per the National Assessment Instrument;
  • Notices of Assessment –  Requires the assessor to sign a declaration confirming the assessment process has been conducted in line with the Australian Quality Training Framework and conditions of registration as a WorkSafe Registered Assessor;
  • Validity and currency of instruments  used – Such as questions relating to overhead power lines, and
  • Public officers – Assessors perform a legislative function on behalf of the Western Australia WorkSafe Commissioner and are deemed 'public officers'.
