6 When assessing the risks associated with any hazards the following applies:

(a) After identifying a hazard a risk assessment only needs to be done once because no

more risks would eventuate.

(b) Higher risk would be based on longer exposure to any hazard.

(c) Lower risk is always associated with the speed at which the operation needs to be

7 A risk assessment should be done when:

(a) A routine job is carried out that is often been done before.

(b) Changes at the workplace occur that may impact on the effectiveness of control


(c) The job safety analysis has shown negligible hazards.

11 Vince is an apprentice electrician and has studied WHS at TAFE. His boss tells him to

go into the hot roof cavity and lay a cable from one end of the house to the other. Vince

discusses this with his boss and sought an alternative method to reduce risks to a

manageable level. This is an example of:

(a) Vince is lazy and takes the easy way out.

(b) Vince recognised the hazard and implemented engineering controls.

(c) Vince was able to eliminate the hazard and all possible risks associated with the


(d) Vince used gap analysis to find the hazard and risks and then chose to use

administrative controls. ( )

12 Control processes must be reviewed when:

(a) All controls have been implemented

(b) An injury or incident occurs

(c) Data such as compensation claims suggest there is a problem

(d) All of the above ( )

Missing word questions, each question or part is worth 1 mark.
