Length: Maximum estimated presentation time limit of 15 minutes

Imagine you are a Workplace Health and Safety consultant engaged by a small business to explain the need for a Health and Safety Committee and Representatives within their workforce. In other words, they wish to know if and why they need to have these, and how to get started. (Assume the business is based in the area in which you live or work.)
Your task is to research and understand the legal requirements in your particular jurisdiction with regards to Health and Safety Committees and Representatives. You will need firstly identify the appropriate Work Health and Safety Act and Regulations within the area in which you work or live (eg Occupational Safety and Health Act 1984 (WA), Mines Safety and Inspection Act 1994 (WA), Petroleum Act 1998 (Vic), Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (NSW), etc.).
Then develop a short presentation (15-min limit) for the fictitious business manager based on your findings. At the end of the presentation, the manager needs to have a good understanding of:
•&?ßsp;What Work Health and Safety law/s are applicable to the place of business.
•&?ßsp;What the law says about Workplace Participation, ie Health and Safety Committees and Representatives.
•&?ßsp;The functions (and limitations) of the Health and Safety Committee and the Representatives.
•&?ßsp;The pros (and any potential cons) of having workplace participation.
•&?ßsp;How to establish and Health and Safety Committee and Representatives, including what training is required and associated costs.

How to submit your assessment:
You may submit your presentation in one of the following ways:
a) A PowerPoint presentation with your narration notes for each slide in the notes section of each slide, with recorded audio narration embedded. This file can be saved and uploaded as a single PowerPoint (.pptx) file.
b) A PowerPoint presentation with your narration notes for each slide in the notes section of each slide, without recorded audio. (This option may result in a lower mark for overall presentation.)
c) A PowerPoint presentation with narration notes for each slide in the notes section of each slide, plus a separate actual recorded presentation saved as an mp4 file. This can be a video of you presenting this to a real or simulated audience using any videorecording device (digital camera, mobile phone, etc.). You will need to upload 2 files: your PowerPoint presentation slides (with speaker notes) and your mp4 video file. Alternatively, you can upload your video to YouTube and include the link with your presentation; this is a good option if your file size is large.
Your completed assessment is to be submitted via the online Blackboard system in the place provided within the Assessment Two folder.
Please ensure you include an ECU Cover Page, Title Page, Reference List and (if applicable) your video recording and inspection checklist.
