Abstract/Summary In Australia, Work Health and Safety (WHS) legislation has been described as process based to the extent that it requires duty holders to reduce risk so far as is reasonably practicable. In order to fulfil this duty, organisations need to implement management processes to identify WHS hazards, assess risks presented by these hazards, decide how to control the risks and implement and monitor the selected control measures.
