Project and Task Risk Assessment Minimum Standard

The University recognises that hazard identification, risk assessment and controls are a critical part of Work Health and Safety (WHS) project and task management. The objective of this Minimum Standard is to provide information on how risks involved with planned activities including field activities are assessed and how controls are selected. It addresses project/task risks, rather than specific hazards identified in the workplace.
