2 1. Objective The Work Health and Safety (WHS) Committee is the University s overarching work health and safety consultative body. The WHS Committee s stated purpose is consistent with the requirements of the Tasmanian Work Health and Safety Act 2012 to: facilitate cooperation between the University and workers in instigating, developing and carrying out measures designed to ensure workers health and safety at work; assist in developing standards, rules and procedures relating to health and safety that are to be followed or complied with at the workplace; perform any other functions agreed between the University and the Committee. The overall aim of the Committee is to support the achievement of the highest level of WHS performance through systematic elimination or reduction of risks, so far as is reasonably practicable. A key objective of the Committee is to ensure that the University recognises the need for continuous improvement of its work health and safety performance for the benefit of its workforce the student community and visitors. The Committee supports the University by being informed of and reinforcing WHS best practice and by engaging with the University stakeholders to promote WHS excellence in work practices. The Committee also aims to assist the University to be distinctive among its peers by identifying, developing and implementing strategies that foster positive safety culture growth within the many workplaces of the University. All University WHS consultative arrangements fall under the umbrella of the WHS Committee. The WHS Committee will: keep a record of Organisational Unit and other WHS consultative arrangements; monitor the effectiveness of these consultative arrangements; consider any issues escalated to the WHS Committee by an Organisational Unit Committee; provide advice, direction and support to the Organisational Unit Committee and other WHS consultative arrangements. The WHS Committee will support special purpose working groups as required from time to time, including: Smoke-Free Working Group 2. Scope The WHS Committee provides direction and support to University management, staff, students, volunteers and contractors working at University workplaces and carrying out University approved off-site work, including University collaborative arrangements with other parties. The WHS Committee makes recommendations to the Senior Management Team. The Committee is not responsible or accountable for WHS management at the Organisational Unit level. This duty of care responsibility remains with the respective University Officers as Organisational Unit heads. However, unresolved Organisational Unit WHS issues can be addressed by the Committee.

7 Appendix A Organisational Unit (or other) Work Health and Safety Committee Guide 1. Background Each Organisational Unit of the University is to implement WHS consultation arrangements as required by legislation. The following structure is provided for guidance on the establishment of a Committee, and the relationship, function and membership of such committees at an Organisational Unit and School level. UNIVERSITY WORK HEALTH AND SAFETY COMMITTEE Advisory Committee who report to the Senior Management Team Chairperson: Dean, Director or General Manager FACULTY/ DIVISION/ INSTITUTE WORK HEALTH AND SAFETY COMMITTEE MEMBERSHIP TO INCLUDE MANAGEMENT AND WORKER REPRESENTATION FROM EACH SCHOOL/ UNIT Chairperson: Head of School/ Unit School/ Unit A WHS Committee Chairperson: Head of School/ Unit School/ Unit B WHS Committee Chairperson: Head of School/ Unit School/ Unit C WHS Committee MEMBERSHIP TO INCLUDE SUPERVISORY AND WORKER REPRESENTATION FROM EACH School WHS Committees (if established) have an advisory and coordinating role for the management of local health and safety matters. Faculty/ Division/ Institute level Committees are expected to include a management and worker representative from each School Health and Safety Committee. This promotes good communication and ensures that matters which are unresolved at School level are referred upwards. Efficient information feedback processes are the key to promotion of continual improvement. Workplace health and safety committees provide a formal and efficient forum for reporting and managing safety. They also provide a means of ensuring proper communication and consultation between all stakeholders including the upwards passage of information to the University WHS Committee. Membership of health and Work Health & Safety Committee Terms of Reference 7

8 safety committees assists senior managers (Officers) to demonstrate due diligence through the recorded minutes of meetings. 2. Structure of Committees Management members of the committee should not represent more than half of the committee membership. The remaining members should preferably be elected Health and Safety Representatives. Committee members must have information and skills to deal with issues in a proper manner and feel that they have adequate knowledge and are comfortable in undertaking the role. The inclusion of senior managers on committees enables decisions to be approved and actioned without the need to refer them for further approval. This encourages members because they can see their recommendations immediately implemented and gives a clear sign that their work is helping to improve and protect health and safety in the workplace. A Deputy Chairperson should be elected from among the committee members. Although largely driven by the size of a workplace, larger committees are likely to be less effective and would not normally exceed twelve members although this number may be slightly varied if proper worker or management representation cannot otherwise be achieved. It is to be noted that where a WHS Committee is requested by University HSRs or workers in accordance with Section 75 of the Work Health and Safety Act 2012, it must be established. The WHS Committee must then be constituted in accordance with section 76 of the Act and at least half of the members of the Committee must be workers who are not nominated by the University. Where appropriate, consultative arrangements may involve two or more Organisational Units, for example where they share similar work health and safety risks, occupy the same building, or are located on the same campus. 3. Terms of Reference The Committee provides the principal Work Health and Safety consultative mechanism and central point of reference of the workplace which it represents. Its principal activities are as follows: To facilitate cooperation between all persons working under the auspices of the University in developing, instigating and carrying out measures designed to optimise health and safety. To review and disseminate required standards, rules and procedures relating to health and safety which are to be complied with in the workplace. The committee may appoint sub-committees as it may determine from time to time, to perform specific tasks on behalf of the Committee, the membership of which shall include at least one member of the Committee. The committee receives reports from its members and sub-committees. Work Health & Safety Committee Terms of Reference 8

9 The committee may make recommendations or request attendance of delegations to the University Work Health and Safety Committee by arrangement via the Work Health and Safety Manager. To ensure that key safety related record keeping documents are made available. The committee must meet at least quarterly but hold meetings as often as needed to deal with work health and safety issues as soon as possible. Meeting agendas and minutes must be made available for inspection. To prepare regular reports, summarising their activities, which are forwarded to their parent health and safety committee i.e. School committees report to Faculty committees who in turn report to the University Work Health and Safety Committee. 4. Faculty Work Health and Safety Committee Membership The membership should represent worker and management members from each School Safety Committee. Committee Chairperson: Dean or Director. Deputy Chairperson: Elected by the committee from the voting members. Workers representation: From each School Safety Committee, an elected Health and Safety Representative. If not available, a School Safety Officer can fulfil this role on a temporary basis but this substitution should be regularly reviewed to improve worker representation. Management representation: Preferably the Head of School or Chairperson from each School Safety Committee. Minutes Secretary: This person is an invitee who supports and records the activities of the committee. Invitees: These individuals are not members of the committee and do not hold voting rights. 5. School Work Health and Safety Committee Membership Worker and management representation should reflect all workplaces within the School. Health and Safety Representatives have a good knowledge of workplaces. Line managers have the authority to make decisions about improvements to health and safety and usually have a good knowledge of the organisation. Committee Chairperson: Head of School. Deputy Chairperson: Elected by the committee from the voting members. Workers representation: Elected Health and Safety Representatives or agreed representatives of workers. Management representation: Primarily, workplace Supervisors and then other local managers. Work Health & Safety Committee Terms of Reference 9

10 Minutes Secretary: This person is an invitee who supports and records the activities of the committee. Invitees: These individuals are not members of the committee and do not hold voting rights. 6. Reporting & Record Keeping Workplace Health and Safety Committees summarise outcomes of their quarterly meetings in minutes and associated activities in an annual report. On behalf of the workplace management, the committee typically oversees compliance monitoring processes used to evaluate health and safety performance according to the following schedule. Workplace Health and Safety Committees should oversee the monitoring processes used to evaluate health and safety performance including: Risk Registers Incidents, injuries, hazards and near miss occurrences Training Workplace Inspections CSA audits and action plans. A sub-committee is to provide to the WHS Committee: a copy of their Terms of Reference; a forward program of scheduled committee meetings - annually; a report listing key initiatives and actions taken - annually. 7.
